Question

A cable used to send data has an attenuation where power drops by a factor of 10 every 20 km. If the input power is 10 W, and the receiver can detect signals with a power of 10-4 W or more, what is the longest cable that can be used without a regenerator

    Define x as the cable length in 20 km increments.

    P(x) = 10(1/10)x ≥ 10-4

    101-x ≥ 10-4

    1 – x ≥ -4

    x ≤ 5

    5(20) = 100 km
