Hello

I'm looking for some help with the following question:

Using the information contained in Section 2.3 of Workbook 2 on Trigonometric Identities, develop an alternative expression for Vo, to show that the output from the multiplier circuit comprises frequency

components at 230 kHz, 250 kHz, and 270 kHz.

Subsequently, plot your alternative mathematical expansion to demonstrate that the two versions of the output signal, Vo, from Part 1 and Part 2, are identical.

Vc = 8cos (2pi250*10^3t)

Va = 5cos (2pi20*10^3t)

Vo = Vc + VcVa/8

Using cos(A)cos(B) = 1/2 [cos(A+B)+cos(A-B)]

Alternative expression:

Vo = 8cos(2pi*250*10^3t)+cos(2pi*270*10^3t)+cos(2pi*230*10^3t)

I have put the original Vo and alternative Vo into desmos and they are not the same, which they should be.

Any help is appreciated.

Just using the given product to sum identity on the second, alternative vo expression, then va must be 2cos not 5cos for the two expressions to match. However if the first expression for vo is correct then there must be a multiplier in front of the second and third cos terms in the alternative expression, so it really depends on which you think is correct.

Vc and Va are the expressions given in the question. To get the first expression I inputted the Vc and Va into the expression given for Vc and that gave me the answer so I don't see how that would not be correct.

I've looked at another example and that works correctly but this example does not seem to match so I must be missing something

If va=5... then when you derive the alternative expression for vo you seem to have a multiplier of 2 rather than 5. However, youd have to post your working to highlight where the error is.

My workings as follows:

Vo = Vc + VaVc/8

Vo = 8cos(2pi250*10^3t)+[5cos(2pi20*10^3t)8cos(2pi250*10^3t)/8]

Vo = 8cos(2pi250*10^3t)+5cos(2pi20*10^3t)cos(2pi250*10^3t)

Apply cos(A) cos(B) = 1/2(cos(A+B)+cos(A-B)

Vo = 8cos(2pi25010^3t) + 1/2[cos(2pi250+20)10^3t) + cos(2pi(250-20)*10^3t)]

Vo = 8cos(2pi25010^3t) +5/2cos(2pi27010^3t) + cos(2pi230*10^3t)]

I have put 5/2 as I am not fully sure on this part which may well be where the error occurrs

Thanks

After applying the product to sum identity you have a 1/2 multiplier but no 5, why? For the identity you have 5cos(A)cos(B) = ...

Your final line is half right, but it seems to be luck, so maybe work though how the appropriate multiplier applies to both cos terms

That's where I am not fully confident. So the 1/2 should be a 5?

And that 5 applies to both terms?

Youve got 5 cos(A)cos(B) terms, not just 1. So you must be able to work out how that affects the right hand side in the identity

cos(A)cos(B) = 1/2 (cos(A+B)+cos(A-B)

Whatever you do to one side of an equation, you must do to the other to keep balance.

Should this be the next step

Vo = 8cos(2pi25010^3t) +5cos(2pi250+20)10^3t) +5 cos(2pi(250-20)*10^3t)]

You could plot it in desmos and its half right, but youve not worked through numbers properly. Start with the previous post and be clear about what youre doing to each side.

yes, just work through the steps clearly and check in desmos if necessary

Yes, you can check in desmos.

Does the 8 have to be multiplied by 5? I am completely lost with this now, don't know the steps to take with this

Original post by thomas0611

You have roughly

8*cos + 5*cos*cos

The first term is correct, you use the identity for the second term and its multplied by 5. You should be able to do this basic algebra and if unsure, check each derived expression with the original one in desmos.

So is it just the cos that gets multiplied? Sorry I haven't had any examples to go off in the workbook and getting myself confused

What do you mean? It should be just basic expressions.
