z0 = sqrt [m0 / e0] = sqrt [4 p * 10-7 * 36 p * 109] = sqrt [144 * 102 * p2] = 120 p = 376.991 (377) W.




5,a) 1*LO + 5*RF  b) 6*LO - 1*RF  c) 3*LO - 2*IF这三个式子中,哪个混频产物是5次谐波产物,这个问题解释用中文我表达不上来,不过关于这个问题有如下英文解释:The order of any product is (±j*LO ±k*IF) simply the sum of the harmonic orders of the two signals that create it. 在这个题目中本振LO的3次谐波和中频IF的二次谐波一起作用产生一个五次谐波产物.而Order = | j | + | k |,由引可见,Order = | 3 | + | -2 | = 5.所以选C.
