1. Suppose that a digitized TV picture is to be transmitted from a sourcethat uses a matrix of 480
500 picture elements (pixels), where each pixelcan take on one of 32 intensity values. Assume that 30 pictures are sentper second. (This digital source is roufhly equivalent to broadcast TVstandards that have been adopted.) Find the source rate (bps).2. Assume that the TV picture is to be transmitted over a channel with4
bandwith and a 35
signal-to-noise ratio. Find the capacityof the channel (bps).3. Discuss how the parameters given in part (1) could be modiﬁed to allowtransmission of color TV signals without increasing the required value forR.

Suppose that data are stored on 1
ﬂoppy diskettes that weigh 30
each. Suppose that an airliner carries 10
of these ﬂoppies at a speed of 1000
over a distance of 5000
. What is the data transmission rate inbits per second of this system?

Stories abound of people who receive radio signals in ﬁlling in their teeth. Sup-pose you have one ﬁlling that is 2
) long that acts as a radioantenna. That is, it is equal to one-half the wavelength. What frequency doyou receive?3
