Motion: Random Signals

S contains m

The signal v(t) from m is a binary waveform. It is either 0.5 V or -0.5 V. The sign change has a 50-50 chance of occurrence within the interval of 1 μs. In other words, v(t) has an equal chance for positive or negative values within this interval.
What is the average and effective values of v(t) over a period of 5 secs?
