NCERT Class 12 Physics Solutions Communication Systems

NCERT Class 12 Physics Solutions Communication Systems- NCERT Solutions prepared for CBSE students by the best teachers in Delhi.

Class XII Chapter 15 – Communication Systems Physics

Question 15.1: Which of the following frequencies will be suitable for beyond-the-horizon communication using sky waves?

(a) 10 kHz

(b) 10 MHz

(c) 1 GHz

(d) 1000 GHz

Answer :(b) Answer: 10 MHz For beyond-the-horizon communication, it is necessary for the signal waves to travel a large distance. 10 KHz signals cannot be radiated efficiently because of the antenna size. The high energy signal waves (1GHz - 1000 GHz) penetrate the ionosphere. 10 MHz frequencies get reflected easily from the ionosphere. Hence, signal waves of such frequencies are suitable for beyond-the-horizon communication.

Question 15.2: Frequencies in the UHF range normally propagate by means of:

(a) Ground waves.

(b) Sky waves.

(c) Surface waves.

(d) Space waves.

Answer (d) Answer: Space waves Owing to its high frequency, an ultra high frequency (UHF) wave can neither travel along the trajectory of the ground nor can it get reflected by the ionosphere. The signals having UHF are propagated through line-of-sight communication, which is nothing but space wave propagation.

Question 15.3: Digital signals

(i) Do not provide a continuous set of values,

(ii) Represent values as discrete steps,

(iii) Can utilize binary system, and

(iv) Can utilize decimal as well as binary systems.

Which of the above statements are true?

(a) (i) and (ii) only

(b) (ii) and (iii) only

(c) (i), (ii) and (iii) but not (iv)

(d) All of (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv).

Answer (c) Answer: A digital signal uses the binary (0 and 1) system for transferring message signals. Such a system cannot utilise the decimal system (which corresponds to analogue signals). Digital signals represent discontinuous values.

Question 15.4: Is it necessary for a transmitting antenna to be at the same height as that of the receiving antenna for line-of-sight communication? A TV transmitting antenna is 81m tall. How much service area can it cover if the receiving antenna is at the ground level?

 Answer:Line-of-sight communication means that there is no physical obstruction between thetransmitter and the receiver. In such communications it is not necessary for the transmitting and receiving antennas to be at the same height.

Height of the given antenna, h = 81 m

Radius of earth, R = 6.4 × 106 m

For range, d = 2Rh, the service area of the antenna is given by the relation:

A = πd2

= π (2Rh)

= 3.14 × 2 × 6.4 × 106 × 81

= 3255.55 × 106 m2

= 3255.55

Question 15.5: A carrier wave of peak voltage 12 V is used to transmit a message signal. What should be the peak voltage of the modulating signal in order to have a modulation index of 75%?

Question 15.7: For an amplitude modulated wave, the maximum amplitude is found to be 10 V while theminimum amplitude is found to be 2 V. Determine the modulation index μ. What would be the value of μ if the minimum amplitude is zero volt?

Question 15.8: Due to economic reasons, only the upper sideband of an AM wave is transmitted, but at the receiving station, there is a facility for generating the carrier. Show that if a device is available which can multiply two signals, then it is possible to recover the modulating signal at the receiver station.
