Step 1

If PT is the power transmitted by an antenna in watts (W), then the power transmitted by the antenna in dBm can be obtained using the following relation:

In short, dBm is a logarithmic unit of power where the reference power is taken as 1 mW.

Step 2

In this case, the value of the power is given as 50 mW.

Plugging this value into equation (1), the value of the power in dBm will become
