1.0 Introduction The purpose of this laboratory session was to introduce basic measurement and analysis methods for AC circuits. This laboratory session analysed voltages in series resistor, capacitor and inductor with the use of test equipments like: Digital Oscilloscope Function Generator 2.0 Summary of Results The Phasor Diagram obtained from all the circuits in experiment shows that the measured values for peak to peak voltages are reliable as the sum of voltage rise and drop is zero. However a significant difference in values for the calculated and measured values can be noticed in experiment 3, which mainly occurred due to the resistance of the inductor not being taken in to account for the measurement of the calculated values. When the frequency of the circuit in figure 1.1 was increased, the peak to peak voltage for the capacitance was seen to decrease and phase angle was seen to be increasing. On the other hand when the frequency of circuit in figure 1.3 was increased, the peak to peak voltage for the inductor was increasing and the phase angle decreasing. 3.0 Circuits Figure 1.1

### What students are saying

• 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.
