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

### 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.
