PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2005 Post Quiz 14 Name___________ ANSWERS _________________ 1. In an experiment like today's, you measure t 1 = 0.012 s, V 1 = 2.310 V, and V 2 = 2.97 V from the following graph. a) What is the frequency of this signal? There are four periods from 0 to t 1 . Then, T = t 1 / 4. f = 1/ T = 4/ t 1 = 4/0.012 s f = 333 Hz units b) What is the amplitude of this signal? V amp = ½( V 2 V 1 ) = ½(2.97 V – 2.31 V) V amp = 0.33 V
