This part of the tutorial demonstrates the Fourier transform operation in a few cases of periodic and non-periodic signals, such as an AM signal, an FM signal, a rectangular non repetitive signal and a cardinal sine signal. The last slide contains an application to the scaling property of the Fourier transform on a non-repetitive time signal. It actually shows thatContinue Reading

The previous sections explains the creation of a discrete Fourier transform model in Excel. This section and the following one will use the model to calculate and chart the Fourier transform in several cases of periodic and non-periodic signals.

The previous sections of the tutorial handled the basic formulas behind building a Fourier model and creating a set of input functions. This section deals with formula implementation on the spreadsheet, the brief VBA code and the charting of the Fourier transform components.

Hi there, this is a tutorial explaining the construction of a very basic Lissajous emulator in Excel. It’s supposed to be very easy to understand at the high school level. Good luck, George [sociallocker][/sociallocker] A Lissajous emulator in Excel by George Lungu   Introduction: Jules A. Lissajous was a French mathematician from the 19th century – He wanted to visualizeContinue Reading

This is a static Lissajous emulator in the sense that the waveform is obtained by combining 2 static sinusoidal waves with different frequencies. As a parenthesis, I will be preparing a dynamic version which will look just like the wave shape seen on a real oscilloscope. The file presented here has two different worksheets, the first one contains a classic 2DContinue Reading
