This does not mean that there is no work to be done prior to coming into lab, however. Part 1 of this lab introduces you to the equipment you will be using throughout the a lab and most of the labs in Physics b, particularly the digital multimeter (DMM), breadboard, power supplies, oscilloscope, and the signal generator.

The breadboard, power supplies and some other components are integrated into a box found at each lab. Laboratory data should be produced under a quality system.

What is Radio Frequency. RF is a term that refers to alternating-current signals having voltages and frequencies such that when these signals input to an antenna, an electromagnetic field is generated suitable for wireless broadcasting.

These frequencies cover a very wide spectrum of 9 kHz to s of these voltages and frequencies freely propagate through space, thus a radio wave.

such that Ф becomes 60˚. If the value of R and C are chosen such that the given frequency for the phase shift of each RC section is 60˚. Therefore at a specific frequency the total phase shift from base to transistor’s around circuit and back to base is exactly ˚ or 0˚.

Thus the Barkhausen criterion for oscillation is satisfied. RF Test Equipment. Have a look at Circuit Specialists' catalog of high quality radio frequency (RF) testing equipment.

Each is best suited to different applications, but the principles of use are common to all. In this lab we use TTL (transistor-transistor-logic). This family of logic circuits requires a 5 V supply voltage and will burn up quickly if +12 V or –12 V are applied.

Before using any TTL chips, check the voltage put out by the 5 V power. A good test for the Hz burst rate for both indoor and power-line noise sources involves an oscilloscope. The oscilloscope should show the bursts occurring every 1/ seconds, or 8 1/3 ms. Look at the suspect noise from a radio's audio output using the AM mode.

by CircuitLab | updated J parallel series RLC resonance PUBLIC. A square wave into a resistor, inductor, and capacitor can produce ringing and narrowband amplification.

An oscilloscope is an invaluable tool for testing electronic circuits by measuring voltages over time, and Figure 5 shows the schematic for monitoring an RC circuit with an oscilloscope. As shown in the figure below, the input voltage from the square-wave generator is monitored by channel one (CH 1) and the voltage across the capacitor is.

Coils in the meter produce a magnetic field. When a conductive fluid is passed through the field, a voltage is produced through an electrode in the meter wall or insertion probe; this generated voltage is proportional to the flow.
