This video clip demonstrates how to determine the worth of unidentified capacitors as well as inductors utilizing your oscilloscope as well as a basic pulse generator. There are numerous methods to do this, yet this video clip concentrates on simply 2 standard methods. The video clip was motivated by this article on scopejunction.com:
The strategies are extremely basic, as well as are an example of standard concepts of RC and also LC circuits. One more reward is that it reveals one more usage for the fast-edge pulse generator that was displayed in a video clip I published numerous days previously on making your very own standard TDR:
The capacitors are determined by just gauging the RC time continuous, as well as the inductors are determined by making a basic LC storage tank circuit and also determining the powerful regularity.
