Greetings, In the first picture below, I create a 5 volts sine amplitude signal with a frequency of about 100 Hertz. The 3 Ohm, 400 turn coil (that will eventually be part of a transformer) is not initially connected. The output waveform from my function generator completely matches my input waveform to Channel of my scope. No problem there. However, if you look at my next picture, when I try to apply my waveform across my coil, it completely squashes my signal! Is this supposed to happen? Why does this happen? My signal goes from 5 volt amplitude to about 50 millivolts (easier to see in person but you can see in the photo this is about so--I left the vols/div knob at 5 volts to compare). It seems to me that my waveform should still be 5 volt amplitude. The frequency remained unchanged whether I connected or disconnected the coil.
