If i have a signal S(t) (the plot would be voltage vs time) and I take its fourier transform, what are the units of the vertical axis? The horizontal axis can either be frequency in hertz or in radians, but what about the other axis? I guess generally I plot the magnitude of the transform since its not always real, but it should still have a unit, no?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks,

David
