### Spectral Leakage in layman's terms

I'm trying to understand the concept of spectral leakage for the DFT, without going deep to the mathematical intricacies (it's for practical purposes). I've read from the book "Introduction to Digital ...

### FFT of any sinusoidal signal — how many point fft to take?

suppose I have to measure the DFT of an 60 hz sinusoidal signal and calculate upto 20 harmonics of this. Value of the 20th harmonic will be 20*60 = 1200 HZ. Then my sampling frequency should be >= 20*...

### For 2D signals can it be said that the frequency response is the same as the Fourier transform?

Say I have a signal: [1, 1 , 1; 1 100 1; 1 1 1];, I wanted its frequency response, then can I take its FFT? Why does MATLAB have two functions to do the same ...

### Different way to separate a particular frequency from a signal

Let's say I have a signal which is composed of 2Hz,10Hz,17Hz,19Hz and 25Hz discrete time sinusoidal waves and I need to allow only 17Hz component to pass. As far as I know, the standard way to ...

### Upsampling and comb function

Could somebody explain how upsampling works with comb function. How comb function looks for upsampling process? (if it possible I would appreciate if answer would be related to DFT)

### Digital signal and frequency analysis

I am generating a digital signal with software. I have defined the vector $$[0,1,1,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]$$ and my sampling rate is 8 million per second. The frequency spectrum is ...

### Finding frequency of data given in time domain

Think there is an analog signal source and we are recording it with a data logger. Sampling rate isn't important in here. We know the analog signal is 0 mV when time 0 and goes to 1000mV in 1000 ...

### Difference between bandpass filter and using fast fourier transform to extract power of frequency bands

In signal processing, I have heard of two terms: Using band-pass filter to extract some frequency bands. Using Discrete/Fast Fourier Transform (DFT/FFT) to extract some frequency bands. Are these ...
Suppose you transmit at a single tone $\omega\textrm{ rad/sec}$ and you have two receiving microphones $i=1,2$ which sample at $r$ samples per second. Assume you have a direct path with coefficients \$...
