Determine the Fourier series (one-sided) for the waveform in​
Fig. 3.7. Evaluate your result for
A ¼ 2, t ¼ 2 s, T ¼ 4 s.

My question is What slope do I need to take between 0 to T.

if I take t/T then I get wrong answer...could anybody tell me how to go about it?

I would take the slope as 1 between 0 and 2s and 0 between 2 & 4 sec.

So
x(t)=t for the interval t=0 to 2 seconds
and
x(t)=2 for the interval t=2 to 4 seconds

With this I got the Cn as below. How do I further respolve and calculate the first seven harmonics?

I know I need to further evaluate it...but do not know how to proceed

Here is the attachment. My apologies for improper update.

I am basically unable to understand how do I proceed in general to minimize the equation and eventually calculate the harmonics.

Assuming your general solution is correct you would make the substitutions for given values of T, $\tau$ and A.

Then you would apply the Euler identities where applicable and evaluate each term for the required harmonic numbers n.
