Description

In the experiment P3.6.1.1, the function generator generates periodic square-wave signals which simulate switching a DC voltage on and off. The square-wave signals are displayed on channel I of the oscilloscope, and the capacitor voltage or capacitor current is displayed on oscilloscope channel II.  The aim of the experiment is to determine the time constant

for various capacitances C from the exponential curve of the respective charging or discharge current IC.
