EXPERIMENT NUMBER 2
RESISTIVE NETWORKS
The resistors used in this laboratory are carbon composition resistors, consisting of
graphite or some other type of carbon embedded in a filler material. Graphite is a
moderately good conductor, so by varying the

EXPERIMENT NUMBER 7
RMS and Average Values
You may need to review the equations for calculating RMS and average values of
a periodic waveform. Prior to performing this lab, determine the ratio between the
RMS value and the peak value for sinusoid, triangl
