• Correction to sample exam problem statement (11/2/2015)
In Problem 2(c) of the sample midterm exam, it turns out that PLF=2/3, not 1, as was given as an assumption in the problem statement. With this correction, Pr should be reduced by 2/3 from the value found on Wednesday last week, leading to Pr=8.191×10-13 W=-90.87 dBm. Thanks, Xueling, for pointing it out.
