Procedure I. RC Circuit For this portion of the lab, we were asked to build the circuit in Figure 1, a simple RC circuit. Of note is the additional 50Ω resistor, this is the internal resistance of the function generator. After calculating the values by hand, we built the circuit with a 320Hz, 10Vp-p, sine wave as the source voltage. Using the oscilloscope, we then measured the waves. Figure 1. The RC circuit for part 1. The additional resistor (R2) is the internal resistance of the function generator. Figure 2. The graph from the oscilloscope in the lab, at a frequency of approximately 3.2kHz Table 1. The values of the measured with the real oscilloscope. Frequency Input Voltage () Output Voltage () Output Voltage () V-I Time Difference () Phase Shift () Resistor Current () 320 Hz 10 V 0.352 V 0.124 V 720 μs 82.94 1.245 mA 3.2 kHz 10 V 2.04 V 0.674 V 64 μs 73.728 6.74 mA 32 kHz 10 V 8.32 V 2.85 V 3.2 μs 36.864 28.5 mA 320 kHz 10 V 9.40 V 3.10 V 80 ns 9.216 31.0 mA Table 2. The calculated values. Frequency Output Voltage () Output Voltage () V-I Time Difference () Phase Shift () Resistor Current () 320 Hz 0.1971 V 0.1393 V 766.2μs 88.27 1.393 mA 3.2 kHz 1.674 V 1.183 V 63.55μs 73.21 11.83 mA 32 kHz 6.678 V 4.722 V 1.592 μs 18.34 47.22 mA
320 kHz 9.526 V 6.736 V 16.4 ns 1.899 67.36 mA As can be seen by comparing the two tables, our error grew as the frequency was pushed higher. This is due to the difficulty in making precise measurements with the oscilloscope and these levels.

### 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.
