Unformatted text preview: α(2) = (x/D)*360 degrees = 69.4 degrees α(1) + α(2) = 93.7 degrees. Ideally, α(1) + α(2) would equal exactly 90 degrees, however given the factors that we are working with, this is within experimental error. In the next section, we found that V(c) has an inverse relationship to frequency. And also that a capacitor’s impedance decreases with frequency, because X(C) = 1/(w*C) = 1/(2*pi*f*C). For question 1-6, our calculations gave us: X = 4467 nanoseconds D = 5610 ns (X/D)*360 degrees = (4467/5610)*360 degrees = 286.65 degrees And X = 1450 ms D = 11450 ms Thus (x/D)*360 degrees = 45.59 degrees As would be predicted by the equation V = I*Z, we found that the amplitude was not dependent upon frequency. We did, however, find that the inductor’s impedance increased with frequency, as would be predicted by the equation X(L) = 2*pi*f*L....
