(a) 60 dB + 25 dB = 85dB

(b) 20 dBW + 5 dBW = 25dBW

(c) 22 dB - 4 dB = 18dB

2. Convert:

(a) 65 W into dB = 18.13dB

(b) 10 dB into watts = 0 watts

(c) – 5 dB into watts = 316.23mW

(d) –30 dBm into dBrn = 60 dBrn

(e) 15 dBrn into dBm = -75 dBm

10 13.98 14.77

2. A three-stage amplifier is shown with power gains. Calculate total power gain in
decibels, and as a number.

Ap(total) = 10 – 13.98 +14.77 = 10.79 dB

3.

(a) Determine the overall power gain.
(b) Find the output power if P
in
= 15 mW

a.) 10 * 10 * 20 = 2000
b.) Po = Pin*(Apt) = .15 * 2000 = 300W

P2

4. If P
in
= -20 dBm, determine the output power in dBm and watts.

Ap(t) = 13+16-6 = 23db
Ap(t) = log^-1(23/10) = 10^(23/10) = 199.526

-20 dBm = (1mW)(log^-1(-20/10)) = .00001W

Po = (Pin)(Ap(t)) = .00001(199.526) = .00199526W
Po = 10log(.00199526/1mW) = 2.999999 or 3 dBm

A
P1
= 13 dB A
P2
= 16 dB A
P3
= -6 dB

5. Determine:

(a) Net gain (b) Net gain in dBs (c) Power output

a.) 400*1/2000*500 = 100
b.) 10*log(100) = 23.01 dB
c.) (0.1W)(100) = 10W

6. Determine:

(b) Net gain (b) Net gain in dBs (c) Power output

a.) 32dB – 24dB + 28dB =36dB
10^(36/10) = 3981.07
b.) 32dB – 24dB + 28dB =36dB
c.) Pin = (0.001)(10^(-8/10) = 158.489uW
Po = 158.489uW(3981.07) = 1.26W
Po(dBm) = -8ddBm+32dB-24dB+28dB = 28dB
Po(watt) = (1mW)(10^(28/10)) =.63W
