Description : An analog signal carries 4 bits in each signal unit. If 1000 signal units are sent per second, then baud rate and bit rate of the signal are ............... and .............. (A) 4000 bauds \ sec & ... (B) 2000 bauds \ sec & 1000 bps (C) 1000 bauds \ sec & 500 bps (D) 1000 bauds \ sec & 4000 bps

Last Answer : (D) 1000 bauds \ sec & 4000 bps Explanation: Bit rate is the number of bits per second. Baud rate is the number of signal units per second. Baud rate is less than or equal to the bit rate. Baud rate = 1000 bauds per second (baud/s) Bit rate = 1000 x 4 = 4000 bps

Description : Define (i)Bit rate (ii)Baud rate

Last Answer : (i)Bit rate :- Bit rate is simply the number of bits transmitted during one second and is expressed in bits per second (bps). Mathematically bit rate is given by:- Rb =1 / Tb where Tb is time ... 1 / Ts Where, baud rate = symbol rate (symbols per second) and Ts = time interval of one symbol.
