Classical Mechanics: Fourier Problem

2. Obtain the Fourier representation of the output of a full-wave rectifier. Plot the first three terms of the expansion and compare with the exact function.

Note: when they say the 'output of a full wave rectifier' they mean the function F(t) = [sin (w4*t)] The angular frequency of the unrectified signal is labeled w4. Think carefully whether it is the same as the fundamental frequency of the rectified signal

Solution Summary

This in-depth solution contains step-by-step calculations to determine the Fourier representation of the out for a full-wave rectifier, it also includes graphs of the expansion. All steps are shown with full explanations.
