Fourier series watch

1. Can i use audacity to found the fourier series of function ? and if yes how? Thanks!
2. Do you mean the software? I presume so, because using 'audacity' in it's actually definition probably wouldn't help

Yes ... I need any application to apply for the Fourier series ...do you know how to do it?

I don't think you can find the Fourier
series, but you can do a spectrum analysis and pick out peaks that will give you a rough idea.

If you google 'audacity fourier analysis' you should be able to find some useful links.

It also makes a difference if you're talking about an actual periodic function, or recorded sound (you talked about a clarinet in a different post). Real sounds are unlikely to be truly periodic, so you're going to have trouble representing them by a Fourier series anyhow.

Thanks!!!
I have downloaded audacity and recorded a clarinet in note B. I have founded the period, frequency and wavelength. + I have plotted the spectrum.
But I still do not know how to found the Fourier series

As I said, if you google you can find some examples of how to pick out harmonic amplitudes. But you're not going to "get a Fourier series" out of this I don't think.
