The axial magnetic field at a distance from a magnet falls-off as l/d3 (note: 3 is the power of d, meaning d cube, it's not multiplying with d) where d is the distance to the magnet. A small, strong, permanent magnet generates a magnetic field that is measured by a small probe placed on its axis. It is desired to use the strength of the measured field to find the position of the (slowly moving) probe. What is the minimum number of bits of an analogue to digital converter in order to measure position to a precision of l mm over a distance range from 10cm to 20cm. Give some practical considerations for improving the accuracy of measurement.

Because measurement is to be done between 10 cm and 20 cm, i.e., 1000 mm to 2000 mm with accuracy of 1 mm. In other words 2000-1000 = 1000 is to be measured with accuracy of 1, and because 2^10 = 1024, therefore, 10 bits will be sufficient for this accuracy. ...

  • " In question 2, you incorrectly add in the $3.00 dividend that was just paid to determine the value of the stock price using the dividend discount model. In question 4 response, it should have also been recognized that dividend discount models are not useful if any of the parameters used in the model are inaccurate. "
