1. Homework Statement

What do you predict the voltage will be measured from B to D directly?

Vtot = 1.0 V peak-peak
Two parallel branches, one with two 1.5 kOhm resistors in series, one with a 1.5 kOhm resistor and a 0.1 μF capacitor in series (see attached diagram)


Homework Equations



V=IR (?)[/B]


The Attempt at a Solution



I think the voltage at B and D should be equal, so the voltage drop from B to D should be 0. Is this right?[/B]

"I think" is not an attempt :)

Can you show a calculation to support your thinking?

EDIT: Also, from what I can make out of the original question statement, two different devices are used to measure voltages: an oscilloscope and a DVM. They have different characteristics. What do you know about the values that DVM's display for voltages?
