Given a text of 600 characters. It is known that the characters are taken from an alphabet with a capacity of 512 characters. Determines the informational amount of text in bits.
Let us find out what the informational weight of one character will be if from the condition of our problem we know for sure that the indicated alphabet has a cardinality equal to 512 characters:
N = 2 ^ i;
2 ^ i = 512;
2 ^ i = 29;
i = 9.
Let us determine what the information volume of the specified text will equal if from the condition of the problem we know for sure that it consists of 600 characters:
I = K * i, where K is the number of characters in the corresponding text;
I = 600 * 9 = 5400.
Answer: Under such conditions, the information volume will be equal to 5400 bits.
