Abstract By doing this lab we were trying to determine how an AC circuit is different from a regular type of circuit. The three big components of an AC circuit are resistance, inductance, and capacitance. Our goal was to try to obtain an experimental value that was extremely close to that of the accepted answer. When measuring capacitance, we came out with a value 8.84 μ F when in reality it was a 10 μ F capacitor. This was only a 12% difference. We achieved similar results for the other measurements. For each of the trials we raised the frequency a little more.
Discussion In doing this is experiment we were trying to analyze different parts of AC circuits that are unique to them. We were mainly concerned with resistance, inductance, and capacitance. In order to do this we set up an AC circuit with some meters. For each measurement we increased the frequency of the function generator. Changing the frequency on the generator can drastically change your
