MAE 3800 Instrumentation and Measurements Laboratory Problem Set #1 Due: Tuesday, February 23 Problem 1 (10 points) One method to measure the current passing through a load is by inserting a shunt resistor with known resistance into the circuit and measure the voltage over the shunt resistor. The voltage over the 4 Ohm shunt resistor is 2 volt in the figure. The load has a resistance of 40 Ohm. Assume that the voltage supplied by the battery is a constant. (a) What is the current flowing through the shunt resistor? (b) What would have been the current flowing through the load if the shunt resistor had not been inserted into the circuit? Problem 2 (10 points) [Prob. 7.6] The circuit shown in Figure 7.37 is used to determine the value of the unknown resistance 2 R . (a) If the voltmeter (input) resistance, L R , is 10 M and voltmeter reads V 65 . 4 = o e , what is the value of 2 R ? Use this value to answer part (b). (b) If the voltmeter has input impedance L R =1 k , what will be the measured voltage? Problem 3 (10 points) [Prob. 9.4 ] Figure 9.20 illustrates a clipped sine wave. (a) Determine the

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.
