# Calculating the bit period

I want to calculate the bit period in my RF packets that I transmit them with 50Kbaud (Symbol rate=bit rate in my case) , how can I calculate the bit period?

• The bit period is the time duration of one bit-- if the symbol rate is the bit rate, then the symbol rate is the inverse of the time duration. Is that what wasn't clear to you or something else? – Dan Boschen Jun 16 at 15:10
• @DanBoschen Yes exactly that's wasn't clear , you mean that 1/(50Kbaud) gives me the bit period .. ? but per what second or ms? – Ryan Jun 16 at 15:25

$$t_p = \frac{1}{50,000} = 20 \mu\text{s}$$
