    got it I think

    if 1. 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 =


    if 0.033 equates to 3% of the time then how do I what 93% is

    Hey fatherjack.

    Hint: if you have 3# then getting 100% is gained by multiplying by 100%/3% or 1/0.03 = 100/3. To get 3% you take this and multiply by 0.93 = 93%/100% as expressed in fraction form.
