PC221 Analog Electronics I Lab; RC Circuits


  1. Print
    • your schematics for the DC and AC circuits
    • your equations for the DC and AC voltages across RL
    • your Bode plot and sketches from measurements
    • your AC analysis trace from the simulation
      Your Bode plot and your AC analysis should look pretty similar. Use the same scales to make this more apparent.

    Comment on any similarities or differences between the various results. As always, your emphasis should be on seeing if all of the various results agree with each other, and trying to figure out why not if they don't.

  2. Summarize what you learned doing the lab. I strongly recommend that you do this within 24 hours of completing the lab. You are summarizing the lab experience not the assigned readings. The summary should be:
    • in point form
    • in your lab notebook
    • maximum 2 pages.

  3. Submit your schematic along with a photocopy of your summary to the lab instructor by next week's lab.
