Determine the wavelength of a 1 GHz electromagnetic wave.
freq = 1e9; lambda = physconst('LightSpeed')/freq
lambda = 0.2998
Determine the thermal noise power per unit bandwidth in the in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) channels of a receiver. Specify a receiver temperature of 290 K.
T = 290; k = physconst('Boltzmann');
Compute the noise power per unit bandwidth, split evenly between the I and Q channels. Units are in dB.
Noise_power = 10*log10(k*T/2)
Noise_power = -206.9855
const— Value of physical constant
Value of physical constant, returned as a real-valued scalar. All values are in SI units.
