ME360 Exam 1, Spring 2010, 7pm9pm, Wednesday, March 31, 135MEB, 153MEB
Focus Topics for Exam 1
Introductory Background.
1. Signal classification: discrete time, continuous time, analog,
sampled, quantized, digital, causal, noncausal, deterministic, stochastic, mixed.
2. Signal measures: absolute and square integrability, absolute and squire summability; power
signals, energy signals.
3. Basic operations on signals: folding, scaling, shifting, decimation, interpolation.
4. Basic characteristics of a periodic signal: frequency, magnitude, phase. Summation of periodic
signals of different frequencies, common period.
5. Signal spectra: phase, magnitude, and power spectra of a simple sinusoid, of a sum of
sinusoids.
6. Finding transfer functions of simple mechanical systems and circuits (equivalent impedance
method for circuits). Effect of output choice on the form of a transfer function.
Instrumentation.
7. AC vs DC coupling, first order low pass and high pass filter transfer
functions and their blocking zeros.
8. Strain gauge (action, bridge configuration, common mode, normal mode), instrumentation
