Hello, I have been working to find the total percentage of power which is contained within a beam. I've realized that I cannot simply use the peak value for Gain, and follow the rules for finding power density, because that is only the maximum power density. If I want to know the actual average power density within this beam, I would need to know the average gain. Can anyone help me understand how I would find this average gain or approximate it? So far the only way I've found is to actually integrate across the half power beamwidth
