Homework Help: Pi (π) section symmetrical attenuators

  1. Oct 15, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    (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?
