im trying to understand shannon's formula for some time now. i have tryed to theorise if this is correct the way i have worked out an example using the formula below.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

c = b x log_{2}(1 + s)

for example

signal to noise ratio 127

b = 3000 b = bandwidth

as shannon's formula states to add one to the signal to noise ratio to make it 128

Log 2 = 2^{7}= 128

then we multiply the log_{2}by the bandwidth to get

21000 Bps

C=BXL

in formula the answer

21000 = 3000 x log_{2}

is that correct?
