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
PHYS 2300 Op Amp Circuits Lab
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 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 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 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
