**Phasor addition in an AM DSBFC envelopeFor a single-frequency modulating signal, am AM envelop is produced from the vector addition of the carrier and upper and lower side frequencies. Phasors of the carrier, The upper and lower frequencies combine and produce a resultant component that combines with the carrier component.Phasors for the carrier, upper and lower frequencies all rotate in the counterclockwise direction.The upper sideband frequency rotates faster than the carrier. (usf > c)The lower sideband frequency rotes slower than the carrier. (usf < c)
**Phasor addition in an AM DSBFC envelope
**If the modulating signal is pure, single frequency sine wave and the modulation process is symmetrical, the % modulation can be derived as follows:
**Peak Amplitudes of Upper and Lower Sidebands The peak change in amplitude of the output wave (Em) is equal to the sum of the voltages from the upper and lower sideband frequencies. Therefore,
