Q1 Define An Antenna? Ans :Antenna is a transition device or a transducer between a guided wave and a free space wave or vice-versa. Antenna is also said to be an impedance transforming device. Q2. What Is Meant By Radiation Pattern? Ans: Radiation pattern is the relative distribution of radiated power as a function of distance in space .It is a graph which shows the variation in actual field strength of the EM wave at all points which are at equal distance from the antenna. The energy radiated in a particular direction by an antenna is measured in terms of FIELD STRENGTH. (E Volts/m) Q3. Define Radiation Intensity? Ans: The power radiated from an antenna per unit solid angle is called the radiation intensity U (watts per steradian or per square degree). The radiation intensity is independent of distance. Q4. Define Beam Efficiency? Ans : The total beam area (WA) consists of the main beam area (WM) plus the minor lobe area (Wm). Thus WA = WM+ Wm. The ratio of the main beam area to the total beam area is called beam efficiency. Beam efficiency (SM) = WM / WA. Q5. Define Directivity? Ans : The directivity of an antenna is equal to the ratio of the maximum power density P (q,f)max to its average value over a sphere as observed in the far field of an antenna. D = P (q,f)max / P(q,f)av. Directivity from Pattern. D = 4p / WA. Directivity from beam area (WA). Q6. What Are The Different Types Of Aperture? Ans :  Effective aperture.  Scattering aperture.  Loss aperture.  Collecting aperture.  Physical aperture. Q7. Define Different Types Of Aperture? Ans :Effective aperture (Ae): It is the area over which the power is extracted from the incident wave and delivered to the load is called effective aperture. Scattering aperture (As): It is the ratio of the reradiated power to the power density of the incident wave. Loss aperture (Ae): It is the area of the antenna which dissipates power as heat. Collecting aperture (Ae): It is the addition of above three apertures. Physical aperture (Ap): This aperture is a measure of the physical size of the antenna. Q8. Define Aperture Efficiency? Ans :The ratio of the effective aperture to the physical aperture is the aperture efficiency. i.e Aperture efficiency = hap = Ae / Ap (dimensionless). Q9. What Is Meant By Effective Height?
