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. 4) Value of the unknown resistance. V = I (R
