# Homework 2, ECE438, Fall 2014, Prof. Boutin

Hard copy due in class, Monday September 15, 2014.

Pick a signal x(t) representing a note of the middle scale of the piano (but not the middle C we did in class) and obtain its CTFT $ X(f) $. Then pick a sampling period $ T_1 $ for which no aliasing occurs and obtain the DTFT of the sampling $ x_1[n]=x(n T_1) $. More precisely, write a mathematical expression for $ X_1(\omega) $ and sketch its graph. Finally, pick a sampling frequency $ T_2 $ for which aliasing occurs and obtain the DTFT of the sampling $ x_2[n]=x(n T_2) $ (i.e., write a mathematical expression for $ X_2(f) $ and sketch its graph.) Note the difference and similarities between $ X(f) $ and $ X_1(\omega) $. Note the differences and similarities between $ X_1(\omega) $ and $ X_2(\omega) $.

## Presentation Guidelines

- Write only on one side of the paper.
- Use a "clean" sheet of paper (e.g., not torn out of a spiral book).
- Staple the pages together.
- Include a cover page.
- Do not let your dog play with your homework.
