Experiment 4: Resistor Capacitor Circuits Introduction: The purpose of this lab report is to inform the lab assistant that I’ve worked through the lab and gained an adequate amount of experience in doing so. The information in this lab deals with measuring and studying the time constants of typical RC circuits. Objective: To measure the time constant of typical RC circuits and study the correlation between time constants and frequency response, using the oscilloscope as a measuring device. Procedures: First, we connected a 1k Ω resistor and a 1μF capacitor in series, using an input voltage between 0 to 3 volts square wave from the generator with a frequency of 100Hz. In preparation, we set the oscilloscope to trigger externally from the function generator at a sweep speed of 1ms/division. Next, we set both channels at 1v/division dc. We then placed both scope probes to the input of the circuit and fine-tuned the scope to 100Hz. Once we received square waves, we set the grounds from both channels to the middle of the
