Q:

How does QAM work?

A:

Quick Answer

The Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) scheme works by changing the amplitude of two out-of-sync carrier waves to successfully transmit data. A QAM tuner enables users to obtain reception of unencrypted digital and HD stations through a cable connection and without the use of a set-top box.

    How does a graded potential work?

    A:

    Cell membranes have an electric potential. Neurons can vary their membrane potential in response to stimuli. When the membrane potential varies with the strength of the stimulus, it is called a graded potential. It is caused by the action of ligand gated ion channels which control the flow of ions across the membrane, thereby varying the membrane potential.
