This is an experiment Ill have to write up later, unfortunately I was out for 2 weeks of lectures due to illness. This is the experiment;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the values of capacitance C and resistance R in a series combination, given he following apparatus;

1. the unknown RC combination (both in the same enclosed box),

2. a known, reference resistor, Rref,

3. a variable frequency signal generator (0-1000Hz),

4. a digital multimeter

An equation involving impedance that I can think of off the top of my head is;

I = (Emax . Sin(wt + &))/ |Z|

I really am completely stumped guys... I just need to know how to do the procedure and then the calculations should be ok... Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.
