Introduction: In this experiment we will see the properties of AC circuits, by observing the phase relationship between the current and the voltage. We will also look into the ringing of capacitors and inductors. From this we will determine the inductance and observe the resonant frequency. Data/Observation: Unknown Resistor: 1) Voltage drop across the 6.8 kOhms resistor. The voltage drop across the 6.8 kOhms resistor was 4.7 volts. We measured 9.4 volts at 10 microseconds so after dividing by 2 it resulted in the 4.7 volts reading. 2) Current in the circuit. V = IR 4.7 = I(6.8 * 10 3 ) I = 6.91 * 10 -4 A The current in the circuit was 6.91 * 10 -4 Amperes. 3) Voltage drop across both resistors. The voltage drop across both resistors was observed to be 6.9 volts. The measured divisions were 6.9 volts per 2 divisions. Therefore the voltage was 6.9 V.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
