Physics 334, Winter Quarter 2012 Electric Circuits Laboratory I Reading Assignments Week 1 Assignment 3-6 January Textbook pp. 1-13 (through power transfer), Lab manual pp. 3-23. This introduces the basics of voltage, current and power, plus resistors and resistors in parallel and in series. This reading includes the voltage-divider, probably the most important resistor circuit you ʼ ll need to know, plus voltage and current sources, and the concept of the “Thévenin” and “Norton” equivalent circuit. This culminates in the concept of input and output impedances. The lab-manual reading goes over this again, and includes how to measure voltages and currents given the imperfections in voltage- and current-sources, and volt- and current-meters. Week 2 Assignment 9-13 January Textbook pp. 13-35 (through power in reactive circuits), Lab manual pp. 32-50. The lecture this week is to go over the Thévenin and

Unformatted text preview: Norton equivalent-circuit concepts again, and start an overview of resistor and diode circuits. We ʼ ll also start the discussion of frequency-dependent circuits with capacitors and simple capacitor circuits. Reading this week anticipates next week ʼ s topics of “reactance”, including phase shifts and complex-number notation. Week 3 Assignment 16-20 January Textbook pp. 35-53 (through diodes). Lab manual pp 64-74. This week will focus on tools that allow understanding how circuits process time-dependent input signals. On Thursday, “reactance” is defined, as is the generalized Ohm ʼ s Law using impedance. We ʼ ll apply this to simple circuits containing capacitors and inductors. The Tuesday lecture goes over the RC differentiator, you might want to look at the similar integrator in the text. The lab this week will look at simple filters made up of single-capacitor networks.

    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.
