I have a simple question but I just can't see the solution. Maybe I don't have enough information to be able to answer it?
It seems simple enough!
A sensor transmits at a duty cycle of 8%
It uses a current of 2.5mA when it is active and 0 when it's not active
On average it transmits 500 b of data per transmission. Each transmission lasts roughly 0.5ms
If the battery capacity is 3000mAh then how long a transmission can the battery support before it runs out of juice?
Those are the only numbers we're given in the question. The wording is slightly different if I can remember correctly but it's asking ''how long a transmission'' can the battery take?
It seems very unclear to me.
What do you guys think? How would I go about solving this?
