Output Transducers Postlab

  1. What was the biggest challenge about doing this lab?
    Discuss this as part of your summary.

  2. Look up the current you determined from the op-amp lab which represented the maximum load which could be driven by the op-amp. Compare this to the current required by your motor. Could an op-amp drive your motor directly? Explain.
    Could an op-amp switch your relay directly? Explain.
  3. Summarize what you learned doing the lab. I strongly recommend that you do this within 24 hours of completing the lab.
  4. Photocopy the question answer and your lab notebook summary and submit them to the instructor at next week's lecture.
