Objective of Experiment
The objectives of this exercise are:
To gain further experience drawing/plotting functions (using Matlab) in the time
as well as the frequency domains
To gain experience in analyzing arbitrary functions in the time as well as in the
frequency domains using the Fourier transform
To be able to determine /evaluate using Matlab the direct Fourier transform as
well as the inverse Fourier transform of arbitrary functions.
To be able to obtain plots of the spectrums of arbitrary time functions (magnitude
and phase plots)
To be able to evaluate power and energy of arbitrary non-periodic functions, in
time as well as in the frequency domain

MATLAB (matrix laboratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and
fourth-generation programming language. Developed by MathWorks, MATLAB allows matrix
manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms, creation of user
interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other languages, including C, C++, Java,
Fortran and Python.
