I can't seem to understand the sketches of the amplitude spectrums provided in my tutorial solutions.
For this part , I understand that X(f) is basically sampling (T/Tp)sinc(Tf). But from what I understand , the amplitude spectrum is a plot of |X(f)| against f. With that being said, shouldn't the sketch in the solution of the sinc function have no portions that go below the x axis? Since |sinc| means that you flip the negative portions up.
Same problem as question 1, why are there negative magnitudes for the frequency components 12pi and -12pi? Given x(t) , X(f) would just be a sum of dirac delta functions , and any negative signs can be changed to a phase. As such , there shouldn't be any negative magnitudes in the amplitude spectrum.
I'm suspecting that maybe there's a difference between a continuous-frequency spectrum and an amplitude spectrum, but question 2 tells me otherwise.
Thanks for the help!
