Oscilloscope Lab Summary

  1. Brief summary of what you did (linking to the lab manual page is OK) Lab
  2. Add links to all wiki pages that contain your notebook entries. This is likely only one page. Lab
  3. Report your value for the fall time using AC coupling.
fall time = 57.48ms
  • Include error bars!
should have taken multiple measurements over time the used mean square for value 
and std deviation for error
  • Explain how you measured this (briefly)
This was measured by using the oscilloscope's measurement and selecting "fall time"  
  1. What did you learn?
  • It's OK if you didn't learn anything. But include things you are still confusing.
I learned a lot about how to read the scope and to make measurements using the tools on the scope.
I think it will help when I am doing labs and have to use it to measure data. I have used a
multi-meter extensively at work but not an oscilloscope. I am still not full sure how I might use
it for measuring values from the actual labs, but think that this will come as the 
lab progresses.
  1. What did you explore outside of the standard lab procedure? Anything interesting?
Didn't have time to do more would like to have more time to play. 
I may pull one out at work and play around a bit when I get time.
  1. What could make the lab better next year?
shorten to leave more time for play.
