- A measure of the degree of modulation, usually involving the ratio of a peak variation to a steady non-peak value. The result may be multiplied by 100 to obtain a percentage.
- In
__frequency__modulation, the ratio of the peak variation of the__carrier wave__frequency, to the frequency of the__modulating signal__. The result may be multiplied by 100 to obtain a percentage. - In amplitude modulation, the
__peak amplitude__variation of the composite__wave__, to the unmodulated carrier amplitude. The result may be multiplied by 100 to obtain a percentage. - In amplitude modulation, the ratio of half the
__difference__between the__maximum__amplitude and__minimum__amplitude, to the average amplitude. The result may be multiplied by 100 to obtain a percentage.
