Speeding Car Given: Find: MHz f 4 . 103 ? f 990 Q ? v MHz f 5 . 103 ? m d 390 ? t Imagine there is a radio tower at the intersection of Green and Goodwin. You are parked in your new car at Green and Lincoln, i.e., directly east of the tower. Unfortunately, your car's radio is broken so that it is permanently set on 103.4 MHz (i.e., that is the resonant frequency of the receiver circuit). (a) If the radio tower were to broadcast directly at 103.4 MHz, the power transferred to the radio circuit would be P max . If the receiver circuit has a quality factor Q = 990, how different (in kHz) could the carrier frequency be (either higher or lower) and still have the power transferred to the radio be at least half its maximum on-resonance value P max ? (b) Unfortunately, the radio tower is actually broadcasting at 103.5 MHz. Clever 212 student that you are, you think to drive your car either away from the tower or towards it, in order that the broadcast frequency is on resonance with your radio receiver. How fast (m/s) would you need to travel (use a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
