In Pre-lab 6, we were asked to convert 2Hz into beats per minute. This was done by recognizing that 1 BPM is equal to 1/60 Hz. By setting up a simple proportion, you can find that 2Hz = 120 BPM. In the second part of the pre-lab, in order to simulate the RC circuit, values for R and C were chosen by plugging into the formula for the time constant which was estimated by looking at the given figure and finding values for R and C that fit. The equation for the time constant is τ = RC The value for τ was estimated by finding the voltage is 37.7% of Vmax and then finding the amount of time that has passed when the signal is at this value on the waveform graph. In Task 2 and 3 of the procedure, we were asked to determine the time constant of the signal. This was done using the same method as in the pre-lab. First, we calculated 36.7% of the peak to peak voltage, and then found the time difference between these two voltage levels. These calculations were simple multiplication and subtraction operations.
