Homework Statement



(a) Design a π section symmetrical attenuator to provide a voltage attenuation of 15 dB and a characteristic impedance of 600 Ω.

(b) Construct and test the π section attenuator. Measure and record the input & output voltages of the attenuator and determine the attenuation in dB.

(c) Test your symmetrical attenuator (practical) against computer models.



2. The attempt at a solution

I have answered question (a) & (b) but I am struggling to work out, how to go about answering (c).

Can please someone provide me with some guidance as I am well and truly stuck with this part of the question?
