And when choosing AC you only see portion of the waveform. Therefore, when the DC offset is set to 0V it should not be any difference since the value DC is zero anyway but when the DC offset is set to 2V there is a difference.

2) In parts f and g, was the DC component measured by the multimeter close to the DC offset set on the function generator? Also, was the AC component measured by the multimeter closer to the peak-to-peak value of the sinusoid or its RMS value? Report values. Yes, the measured value of the DC component was -0.025V when DC was set to 0V and 1.969V when DC was set to 2V(as shown in section 2 - experimental data). The value of the AC component was 1.767V which is closer to its RMS value than the peak-to-peak value. 3) Under what conditions would the waveform shift up or down on the scope display as the setting was switched from AC to DC coupling? When the DC offset value is greater than zero the waveform should shift up when going from AC to DC. Which also makes the waveform shift down when the DC offset value is less than zero. Section 3 - Procedure In order to verify Kirchhoff’s Law, construct the first circuit shown in the Data Section. Measure the source voltage through input 1 of the oscilloscope, and the voltage across the 1.5k Ω Resistor (V 2 ) through input 2 of the oscilloscope. Use the Math feature of the oscilloscope to calculate the voltage through the 1k Ω (V 1 ) and display it on the scope. Captures of these graphs are included in the Experimental Data section. Using these graphs, calculate the Peak-to-peak voltages of the source voltage, and of V 1 and V 2 . Next, replace the 1.5k Ω Resistor with a decade capacitor set to 0.1 nF, as shown in the second circuit diagram. Measure V 2 across the capacitor with a scope attached to channel 2. The math feature to calculate V 1 should still be set up from the last circuit, repeat that section of the previous instruction. Again, display these functions on the oscilloscope and capture the results.

    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.
