1.1-2 Find the energies of the signals illustrated in Fig. P1.1-2. Comment on the effect on energy
of sign change, time shifting, or doubling of the signal. What is the effect on the energy if
the signal is multiplied by k?

Neither sign change nor time shifting effect the energy of a signal. However, multiplying a signal
by some factor k results in the energy being multiplied by k2.

The energy of x ( t ) is E 1.0417 .

(a) What is the energy of
y1 ( t ) = (1/ 3) x ( 2t ) ?
(b) A periodic signal y2 ( t ) is defined as
0t <4
x ( t )
y2 ( t ) =
y2 ( t + 4 ) t
What is the power of y2 ( t ) ?

(c) What is the power of y3 ( t ) = (1/ 3) y2 ( 2t ) ?

(a) The time dimension is compressed by a factor of 2, and the amplitude is reduced to 1/3 of its
former value. Since energy uses the square of the amplitude,
