    Uncertainty of an oscilloscope frequency, read from the period

    Hi, I am unsure of what uncertainty to get, so here is my full question: I used the CRO for an experiment, and since what I need is frequency, I read the period, so for the uncertainty of the period, it is the smallest division divided by two. So if my uncertainty for period is 0.001s, then what...

    Offset Limits in RIGOL Oscilloscope

    Hello, I have a very specific problem and didn't find any way to solve it. My signal is very slow changing at 5V +-100mV When I want to display this signal on my RIGOL Oscilloscope, the problem is, that with AC-mode I don't see those slow changes and in DC-mode the offset range is limited to...

    Using Tektronix Oscilloscope to Measure Phase

    Hi guys, I am working on a project that involves measuring the phase angle between two sinusoidal voltages. The circuit under examination is an RL type (the resistor was in series with the inductor), where the phase of voltage across the inductor is measured relative to the voltage input of the...

    How to measure output voltage of B200?

    Hi, I am a new student and trying to to measure the power and voltage output from B200 SDR device (https://www.ettus.com/content/files/b200-b210_spec_sheet.pdf) using oscilloscope (TDS3000 Series: https://www.atecorp.com/ATECorp/media/pdfs/data-sheets/Tektronix-TDS3000_Series_Manual.pdf)...

    How to measure time variation of 2 signals using an oscilloscope?

    I have 2 rubidium clocks which both are generating 10MHz sine wave. Some reason my system is giving bad data. So, I am deciding to inspect every single part of the system. I am trying to check the rubidium clock and make sure it have to be in nanosecond time variation, because: t=1/f = 1/10e6 =...

    Find the speed of sound

    1. Homework Statement In this part of the lab you tracked a single peak as you moved a microphone in order to get a good value of the speed of sound. This question will lead you through a similar process with just two measurements. (The lab set up: speaker emitting the signal faced one...

    Measuring AC current with an oscilloscope.

    I have a technical question, for research purposes. I have LED that we probe in AC mode. To measure the applied voltage in AC and the light-response in AC is no problem. However I would like to measure the current going through the device as well and I would like to link it to an oscilloscope...

    Optimal location of receiver on a transmission line

    I am measuring a communications bus with an oscilloscope at various points along the line. I understand that there will be reflections at each stub as well as at the ends of the bus if the impedance doesn't match. I also understand that these reflected signals will add/subtract with the...

    Op-amp circuits and noise at high frequency/low amplitude

    Hi everyone. I am tasked with amplifying an input voltage of around 1nA at anywhere between 10,000kHz to 1MHz to a sufficient amount. We've been using op-amps in multiple stages in series to amplify the signal. At our disposal we have a function generator, oscilloscope, breadboard and...

    I Op-amps, noise and high frequency/low current input signal

    Hello everyone, In my lab class we've been given task of using op-amps to amplify a current of 1nA and frequency of order of madnitude 1MHz to a discernable level. We've been given breadboards, a selection of different op amps, resistors, an oscilloscope etc to achieve this task. We've made...

    B Interferometry on photodetector

    Hello! I am trying an interferometry experiment using the Michelson Morley experiment. I managed to obtain the interference pattern on a screen, but I want to use an photodetector and I am not sure what should I obtain. As I know, the oscilloscope shows the intensity of the light, so if I modify...

    Unwanted noise in oscilloscope diaplay

    Hi I'm a beginner on using an oscilloscope and I'm sorry if my question may be repeated in other posts. I was working on a circuit with the following materials: (1) an Al plate (5mm thick) (2) a disk-shaped piezo transducer with special electrodes (product note)(product link) (3) two wires...

    Tektronix 2465 Oscilloscope problem

    So I have a vintage analog TEKTRONIX 2465 Oscilloscope that I bought used on eBay for a bargain of $300 last year. When I got it worked okayyyyy except when there was no input the CRT would display Channel 1 and 2 lines slanted and pressing the BEAM FIND button didn't help(nor adjusting the...

    Engineering Finding the component values of a RLC circuit

    What methods could I utilise to find the individual values of the components - resistor, inductor and capacitor - of a series RLC circuit using an oscilloscope, signal generator and 10 ohm resistor. Where each component can be isolated in order to find the voltage etc. I've already found the...

    Ultrasound NDT (non-destructive testing)

    Hi all, I've a question and I hope that I can get some answers here. As what my project has tasked, and what my lecturer had said. He needs me to build a device for NDT Testing. Currently the set up is that I would source for a transducer via olympus coupled with a USB oscilloscope capable...

    Measure high and low impedance

    Hi All, I am measuring the impedance response of a piezoelectric component. It has a unique impedance response having a resonance portion (low impedance ~10-30ohmns) and large impedance (100k-200kohmns) within a 2kHz bandwidth. See the webpage for a figure showing the impedance behavior. The...
