# Need formula for percent bandwidth. - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I need the formula to calculate percent of bandwidth, as in "60 GHz, +/-5%." Can someone help?

Hi jstover,

If we assume that there is a given center frequency called fc and we need to know the ranges we need to measure around fc in percentage, we can use the following formula to find the lower(fl) and higher(fh) frequencies which the percentage will allow.

fl=fc*(1-%/100)
fh=fc*(1-%/100)

So, if we assume that fc=60GHz and there is a +/- 5% bandwidth around this, then we can find:

fl=60GHz*(1-5/100)=57GHz
fh=60GHz*(1+5/100)=63GHz

I hope this is what you were asking for and that it helps you out.

-J

 Thanks for your response. Somehow, I remembered it as being more complex than simple percentage math.
