A Gaussian voltage random variable X [see (2.4-1)] has a mean value 𝑋̅ = 𝑎𝑋 = 0 and variance
𝜎𝑋 2 =9. The voltage X is applied to a square-law, full wave diode detector with a transfer
characteristic 𝑌 = 5𝑋 2 . Find the mean value of the output voltage Y.
Solution
𝑋̅ = 𝑎𝑋 = 0 and variance 𝜎𝑋 2 =9 and 𝑌 = 5𝑋 2
Find: Find the mean value of the output voltage Y.
The expected value of any random variable X is defined by

The Gaussian random variable form:


1 2 /2𝜎 2
𝑓𝑋 (𝑥) = 𝑒 −(𝑥−𝑎𝑋 ) 𝑋
√2𝜋𝜎𝑋 2
Since 𝑔(𝑋) = 𝑌 = 5𝑋 2 ,thus
E[Y] = E[g(X)]

Since ∫−∞ 𝜉 2 √2𝜋 𝑑𝜉 = 1 Variance of zero mean Gaussian random variable with variance = 1,
so
𝐸[5𝑋 2 ] = 5𝑋 2 = 5 × 9 = 45
Hence, 𝐸[𝑌] = 45

A certain meter is designed to measure small dc voltages but makes errors because of noise.
The errors are accurately represented as a Gaussian random variable with a mean of zero and
a standard deviation 10-3 V. When the dc voltage is disconnected, it is found that the probability
is 0.5 that the meter reading is positive due to noise. With the dc voltage present, this
probability becomes 0.2514. What is the dc voltage?
Solution
𝑎𝑋 = 0 , 𝜎𝑋 = 10−3 , p = 0.2514 ( the present probability of dc voltage).
Find: What is the dc voltage?
With the DC signal become a density of random noise, thus it becomes a Gaussian random
variable, so
0−𝑥
𝑃{0 < 𝑥} = 0.2514 = 1 − 𝐹𝑋 (0) = 1 − 𝐹 ( )
𝜎𝑋
−𝑥 –𝑥
⇒ 𝐹 (𝜎 ) = 1 − 0.2514 = 0.7486 ; From the Table.B-1 the value 𝜎 = 0.67
𝑋 𝑋

⇒ 𝑥 = −0.67𝜎𝑋 = −0.67 × 10−3 = −670𝜇𝑉 Hence, 𝑥 = −670𝜇𝑉

A random variable X is uniformly distributed on the interval (-π/2, π/2). X is transformed to the
new random variable Y = T(X) = a tan (X), where a > 0. Find the probability density function of Y
Solution:
T(X) is monotonically increasing in X, so equation below applies
