Introduction In Electronics Lab I, we had to conduct a second lab that would teach us the voltage division in representative resistive circuits. Objectives In the lab we were suppose to connect, in series and in parallel, together and then connect one side to the ground and the other to a 10 volt voltage source. The objective here was to see how the voltage would divide between the two resistors, whether it be in parallel or series or how big the resistor. Procedures First, we were to connect a 10k potentiometer fitted with a knob to a 10k resistor. Connect one terminal to the ground and then the other to a 10 volt voltage source and measure the output voltage at each hourly position. Next, we add another 10k resistor to the center tap of potentiometer and again measure the voltages.

Unformatted text preview: Then, we restart and connect a 3.3k resistor to a switch and to the potentiometer. We then take this circuit and remove the switch, replacing it with a 10k resistor and measure the output voltage as a function of the position of the potentiometer knob. For the final step, we take the circuit from the previous measurements and flip it upside down doing the same procedures and again measuring the output voltages. Analysis Conclusion We have concluded that the output voltage is linear to the position of the potentiometer knob for each case, but whenever you reach the last graph you notice that at one circuit the voltage can only go so high and the other can only go so low due to the resistor. I feel that we were successful in our attempt to study the voltage division in representative resistive circuits....

    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.
