This torque drives a mechanical load whose freebody diagram is illustrated in Fig. 1.33b. The viscous damping (with coefficient B ), which is proportional t o the angular velocity 0, dissipates a torque BiJ(t).

A s ystem processes input signals t o modify them or extract additional information from them to produce o utput signals (response). A system may be made up of physical components (hardware realization) o r m ay be a n a lgorithm t hat computes a n o utput signal from a n i nput signal (software realization). A convenient measure of the size of a signal is its energy if it is finite. I f t he signal energy is infinite, t he a ppropriate measure is its power, if it exists. T he signal power is t he t ime average of its energy (averaged over t he entire time interval from - 00 t o ( 0). F or p eriodic signals t he t ime averaging need be performed only over one period in view of t he periodic repetition of the signal. Signal power is also equal t o t he m ean s quared value of t he signal (averaged over t he entire time interval from t = - 00 t o (0). Signals can be classified in several ways as follows: 1. A c ontinuous-time signal is specified for a continuum of values of t he independent variable (such as time t). A discrete-time signal is specified only a t a finite or a countable s et of time ins...
