The Oscilloscope March 27 th , 2007 Pre-Questions: None Purpose: To observe waves generated at certain frequencies using an oscilloscope to measure voltage patterns. Inside the oscilloscope is a cathode ray tube which emits light when hit with electron. An image is produced and the generated wave can be measured and recorded. Method: The procedure was followed (26.4-26.7). In part 3, the power supply was set to 10V instead of 20V. Diagrams: The Oscilloscope Data: Part 1: Amplitude and period measurement
