i.83. Derive the equation which relates the power received to the power transmitted between these two antennas (in the so called free-space path equation or Friis transmission equation form). z2=3. 5. the gain of the array relative to a single conter-fed halfwavelength dipole antenna. Please indicate your bonus from your home work assignments. . For this arrangement. Assume that the mutual impedance between dipole is 40 –j30  . Two antennas are separated by a distance R. . For the Bessel function [J1(zn) = 0] occur at z1=0.17. . and the elements are supplied with equal power signals but different excitation current and different phase as indicated in the following figure. and derive the normalized array factor. z3=7. The element separation is one-quarter wavelength. 6. 7. we wish to find the ratio of the currents at the input terminals of the antenna. Hint: The far-field components radiated by a circular loop of radius a and constant current I0 are given by where J1(z) is the Bessel function of the first order.4. b) Find the angles where the nulls occur. Design a constant current circular loop so that its far-field pattern has a null in the plane of the loop. Bonus= 3 .02.
