# HOW CAN I CALCULATE THE SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO(SNR) OF A CHIRP SIGNAL

I have a signal which is comprised of 4 chirp signals and an additive noise with the same sampling frequency and size is generated now i need to calculate the SNR of the signal and noise . Also if I am correct to vary the signal to noise ratio is it ok if I vary the amplitudes of chirp signals and also the noise by multiplying it with a factor : ex:

`noise = randn(size(t));where t = 0:1e-4:1;`

and to increase the noise

`{new noise = 2*noise ;}`

is this correct?? and to increase the amplitudes of the signal is this the way to change the signal to noise ratio:

`y3 = 5* chirp(t,600,t1,800,'linear');`

???????y4 = 3.5*chirp(t,900,t1,980,’linear’);

`NR = Psignal / Pnoise = (Asignal / Anoise)^2`

Where P is power, and A is amplitude. I would calculate the RMS amplitudes and use those in the above formula.

RMS means Root-Mean-Square. That is, you square your signal, calculate the mean of that, and take the square root. Just define a wee anonymous function for clarity:

`RMS = @(x) sqrt(mean(x.^2));`
