W idth of t he Convolved Function T he w idths ( durations) of f (t), g (t), a nd c (t) in Example 2.8 (Fig. 2.10) are 2, 3, a nd 5 respectively. Note t hat t he w idth of c (t) in t his case is t he s um of t he w idths of f (t) a nd g (t). T his observation is n ot a coincidence. Using t he concept of graphical convolution, we can readily see t hat if f (t) a nd g (t) have t he finite widths of T l a nd T2 respectively, t hen t he w idth of c (t) is generally equal to T l + T2. T he reason is t hat t he t ime it takes for a signal of width (duration) T l t o completely pass a nother signal of width (duration) T2 so t hat t hey become nonoverlapping is T l + T2' W hen t he two signals become nonoverlapping, t he convolution goes t o zero. However, t here a re cases where t he two signals f (r) a nd g (t - r) overlap, yet t he a rea u nder t heir p roduct vanishes. Such is t he case of signals in Fig. P 2.4-14 for r > 27r.

I n t he s tudy of signals a nd s ystems we often come across signals such as impulses, which cannot be generated in practice. O ne wonders why we even consider such signals. T he answer should be clear from our discussion so far in this chapter. Even if t he impulse function has no physical existence, we can compute t he s ystem response h (t) t o t his p hantom i nput according t o t he p rocedure in Sec. 2 .3, a nd knowing h (t), we c an compute t he s ystem response t o any a rbitrary i nput. T he concept of impulse response, therefore, provides a n effective intermediary for computing system response to a n a rbitrary i nput. In addition, t he impulse response h (t) itself provides a...
