) Shannon capacity tells us theoretical highest data rate or the capacity of a channel irrespective of the physical materials of the channel or media. It is calculated for a channel with the following formula C = B log2 (1 + S/N) in bps. Where B=bandwidth of the channel and S/N=signal to noise ratio.
2) The capacity of the channel becomes zero when the signal to noise ratio is zero or for extremely noisy channel S/N=0…..
3) Extremely noisy channel
S/N = 33dB or 2981 watts
And bandwidth of the signal B=2000
So, C = B log2 (1 + S/N) = 2000 log2 (1+2981)
C = 2000 log2 (2982) = 2000*11.52 = 23056.47 bps
to be more specific capacity becomes zero when the signal power is zero. since
S/N=S/(N0*B) S- signal power, N0 - noise PSD, B- Bandwidth for txn
S/N=0 If and only if S=0; because if N0 AND B are zero S/N=infinity
