PHYS 2300 Diode Circuits Lab
Construct a half-wave rectifier circuit with a 6.3 VAC (rms) transformer and a
1N914 diode, as shown above.
Connect a 2.2k load and look a the output on the scope. Is it what you expected?
Polarity? Why is
PHYS 2300 Transistor Lab
Transistor Junctions are Diodes
Here is a method for spot-checking a suspected bad transistor: the transistor
must look like a pair of diodes when you test each junction separately.
CAUTION: do not take this as a description of th

Operational Amplifiers - Op Amps
Before you start to build your first op amp circuit, we should take the time to
remind you of three points:
1) How the integrated circuit (IC) package goes in the breadboard. The IC
PHYS 2300 DC Circuits Lab
The first thing we will do is verify that a resistor obeys Ohms law by measuring V
and I for a few voltages.
It is not expected that Ohms law will be a surprising new result to you (I hope not
anyway!). This is more of a
PHYS 2300 Capacitor Lab
Construct the circuit above. Use a mylar capacitor. Drive the circuit with a 500 Hz
square wave, and look at the output (be sure to use the scopes DC input
Measure the time constant by determining the time for
