(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

ok so im given that I(t) = A cos (w1 t)cos(w2 t)

where w2<<w1

then im asked to express I as the sum of two cosine functions with angular frequences P and Q which I have:

I = A/2 (cosPt + cosQt) where P = w1+w2 and Q=w1-w2

Im then asked to evaluate the bandwith in terms of w1 and w2

Is this just |P-Q| in which case it would be 2w2? im confused :S thanks
