A voice-grade AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise) telephone channel has a bandwidth of 4.0 kHz and two-sided noise power spectral density $${\eta \over 2} = 2.5\, \times \,{10^{ - 5}}$$ Watt per Hz. If information at the rate of 52 kbps is to be transmitted over this channel with arbitrarily small bit error rate, then the minimum bit energy $${E_b}$$ (in mJ/bit) necessary is ________________

A binary communication system makes use of the symbols “zero” and “one”. There are channel errors. Consider the following events:

$${x_0}$$ : a " zero " is transmitted

$${x_1}$$ : a " one " is transmitted

$${y_0}$$ : a " zero " is received

$${y_1}$$ : a " one " is received

$${x_0}$$ : a " zero " is transmitted

$${x_1}$$ : a " one " is transmitted

$${y_0}$$ : a " zero " is received

$${y_1}$$ : a " one " is received

The following probabilities are given:

$$P({x_0}) = \,{3 \over 4},\,\left( {\,\left. {{y_0}} \right|{x_0}} \right) = \,{1 \over 2},\,\,and\,P\,\,\left( {\,\left. {{y_0}} \right|{x_1}} \right) = \,{1 \over 2}$$.

The information in bits that you obtain when you learn which symbol has been received (while you know that a " zero " has been transmitted) is _____________
