Objective The objective of this experiment is to allow us to become more comfortable with the lab equipment, like the function generator. We will use this device to reinforce the concepts of RMS, AVERAGE, and PEAK quantities. We will also gain a better understanding of simple resistor networks by using the protoboard to measure voltages and currents through certain resistors. This will also allow us to realize the basic concepts of the Thevenin Equivalent. Equipment Used - HP Function Generator - ProtoBoard - Oscilloscope - Multimeter - Ohmmeter - Various resistors Procedure Step 1 – First, we must make the necessary connections so the protoboard is accurately connected to the oscilloscope as well as the multimeter. This step is crucial in having a successful laboratory experience. Step 2 – Next, we must connect the HP function generator to the oscilloscope and the multimeter in order to produce a sinusoidal signal.
