EE 212 Lab
 Lab 3: Square Waves and RC Time Constants

 Prelab 3

The purpose of this lab is to measure the step and square-wave responses of an RC circuit to gain a better understanding of step responses and time constants.

Laboratory Procedure:

1. Observe waveforms using the oscilloscope and note effects of AC vs. DC coupling.

2. Measure rise time of a function generator square-wave.

3. Calibration and probe settings for the oscilloscope.

4. View and investigate RC circuit step responses.
