Chitode 20 - Provide some suggestions for further reading or learning ## FAQs - Q: What is the difference between analog and digital communication? - A: Analog communication uses continuous signals that vary in amplitude or frequency to represent information, while digital communication uses discrete signals that have only two states (0 or 1) to represent information. - Q: What is the difference between frequency division multiplexing (FDM) and pulse width modulation (PWM)? - A: FDM is a technique that allows multiple signals to share a common frequency band by dividing it into sub-bands and assigning each signal to a different sub-band. PWM is a technique that allows a signal to be transmitted by varying the width of a constant-frequency pulse. - Q: What is the difference between transmission line and radio propagation? - A: Transmission line is a physical medium that carries electrical signals from one point to another, such as a wire or a cable. Radio propagation is a phenomenon that allows electromagnetic waves to travel through free space or air. - Q: What is the difference between entropy and information rate? - A: Entropy is a measure of the uncertainty or randomness of a source of information, while information rate is a measure of the average amount of information produced by a source per unit time. - Q: What is the difference between mutual information and channel capacity? - A: Mutual information is a measure of the amount of information that can be transferred from one random variable to another through a channel, while channel capacity is a measure of the maximum possible mutual information that can be achieved for a given channel.
