Overview

The purpose of this lab is to introduce you to important tools for investigation in experiments (oscilloscope, multi-meter, signal generator), and to analog electronics and circuits. You will need these tools in your career in experimental physics. In this module, you will study complex impedance, RC and RLC circuits, make low pass and high pass filters, electrical noise, and explore pulse propagation in cables (reflections, effect of termination resistance).
