# The total power of an AM transmitter having a carrier power of 50 W :

The total power of an AM transmitter having a carrier power of 50 W and the percentage of modulation at 80% is

- 66 W
- 50 W
- 68 W
- 70 W

Answer 1. Total Power = 66W

Carrier Power = 50W

Percentage modulation = 80%

**Total Power = Carrier Power * ( 1 + ( Percentage modulation / 100 ) ^{2 } / 2 )
**P

_{t}= 50 * (1 + (.80)

^{2}/ 2 )

P

_{t}= 50 * 1.32

P

_{t}= 66 W

**Total Power = 66 W **
