Oscilloscope Lab Summary
Summary of Activities
During this lab we performed the activities listed on Physics307L:Labs/Oscilloscope, with the exception of the optional activities.SJK 16:40, 24 September 2010 (EDT)
My lab notebook and data are on User:Alex_G._Benedict/Notebook/Physics_307L:_Junior_Lab/Oscilloscope_Lab.
As can be seen in the lab notebook in the embedded spreadsheet on sheet 2, the fall time varies based on the frequency of the generated square wave, for frequencies around 6ish hertz, it is about 20ms.The uncertainty in my measurements is about 0.14*the expected tau. Which is the average of the relative errors.SJK 16:31, 24 September 2010 (EDT)
What Was Learned
In this lab I learned more about how to use an oscilloscope, and how to embed spreadsheets into wiki pages thanks to Embed a Google Spreadsheet and User:Alexandra_S._Andrego/Notebook/Physics_307L/2009/09/14.
Things Explored Outside of SLP
Nothing really, we stuck to the directions pretty closely.
Adding a standard frequency of the square wave to measure during the AC coupling section. I would suggest a 5Hz wave.
