    This as been sending me round the bend

    How long does each node transmit for in every hour? Express your answer in seconds.

    33 ms = 33 x 10-3 s = 0.033 s
    So, the duty cycle is (0.033 s T s) x 100% = 3%
    Transposing the formula gives T s =


    1 hour : 60 *60= 3 600

    You need to clarify your problem better. The one before this is utter gibberish...Excuse me if I am wrong but I can't make no sense of your questions.

    Transposing the formula gives T s =
    So you are saying \frac{.033}{T}= .03?
    Multiplying both sides by T, .033= .03T
    Dividing both sides by .03, T= \frac{.033}{.3}= \frac{33}{30}= 1.1

    sorry for not making it clear I need to find the value of T to solve equation but as it represents part of the duty cycle
