# What is the modulating factor given maximum peak to peak voltage of an AM is 10mv and minimum peak to peak voltage is 2mv.

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;0.3\\(b)\;3\\(c)\;0.6\\(d)\;6\end{array}$

Maximum voltage of AM wave $V_{max}=\large\frac{10}{2}$$=5mv Minimum voltage of AM wave V_{min}=\large\frac{2}{2}$$=1mv$
Modulating factor =$\large\frac{V_{max}-V_{min}}{V_{max}+V_{min}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{5-1}{5+1}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{4}{6}$
$\Rightarrow 0.6$
Hence (c) is the correct option.
