# The Fourier Series: Exercises

Module by: Carlos E. Davila. E-mail the author

1. Show that an even-symmetric periodic signal has Fourier Series coefficients bn=0bn=0 while an odd-symmetric signal has an=0an=0.
2. Find the trigonometric form of the Fourier Series of the periodic signal shown in Figure 1.
3. Find the trigonometric form of the Fourier Series for the periodic signal shown in Figure 2.
4. Find the trigonometric form of the Fourier Series for the periodic signal shown in Figure 3 for τ=1τ=1, T=10T=10.
5. Suppose that x(t)=5+3cos(5t)-2sin(3t)+cos(45t)x(t)=5+3cos(5t)-2sin(3t)+cos(45t).
1. Find the period of this periodic signal.
2. Find the trigonometric form of the Fourier Series.
6. Find the complex form of the Fourier Series of the periodic signal shown in Figure 1.
7. Find the complex form of the Fourier Series of the periodic signal shown in Figure 2.
8. Find the complex form of the Fourier Series for the signal in Figure 3 using:
1. τ=1τ=1, T=10T=10.
2. τ=1τ=1, T=100T=100.
For each case plot the magnitude of the Fourier Series coefficients. You may use Matlab or some other programming language to do this.
9. Show that
1Tt0t0+Tnmcncm*ej(n-m)Ω0tdt=01Tt0t0+Tnmcncm*ej(n-m)Ω0tdt=0

### What is an EPUB file?

EPUB is an electronic book format that can be read on a variety of mobile devices.

My Favorites (?)

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.

| A lens I own (?)

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
