Attenuation and white noise, Data Transmission homework help

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Computer Science class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

Describe real-world examples of attenuation and white noise. Examine the effect on the information-carrying capacity of the link and present a way to avoid these types of interruptions.

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

White noise is due to thermal agitation of electrons thus is very hard to escape them cause they are somehow natural

The amount of noise depends with the temperature 

To avoid this the medium should be kept cool as much as possible


Attenuation-signal strength falls off with distance.Caused by  unguided media, attenuation is a more complex function of distance and the makeup of the atmosphere .

This problem is solved by use of repeaters   and amplifiears  so as to boost the transmission 


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
