Application Of Oscilloscope

Uses Of Oscilloscope

  1. Voltage Measurement: The parameter of voltage which is most easily determined using an oscilloscope is for a sine wave, the peak to peak value. Note: Peak to peak voltage = 2 value [for a pure sine wave].
  2. Current Measurement: The oscilloscope is high input impedance instrument, and therefore cannot be directly used for the measurements of current. Currents can of course be measured as voltage drops across resistors for this purpose because unless a differential input amplifier is being used as one side of the voltage resistor will have to be at earth potential.
  3. Phase Angle Measurement: An approximate measurement of the phase angle between two voltages may be performed using the graticule of a dual trace oscilloscope to determine first, the length of a complete cycle, and then the separation of the peaks of the two voltages waveforms on the two traces.
  4. Frequency measurement: A sinusoidal trace on the face of C.R.O has a peak-to-peak amplitude of 5.6cm and two circles are completed in an X- displacement of 9cm. If the Y-gain control is set at and the time base control at 1ms/cm. Determine the r.m.s value of waveform and it’s frequency.

On the 4th of November I officially became a member of the exclusive 1st student with distinction after five years of no such record, in the history of The Polytechnic Ibadan, Faculty of Engineering to graduate with distinction as a DPP students since its establishment in 2011. My unrelenting power to solve problems, have made me to create a platform where student can get valid information anywhere, anyplace at anytime Evolving education world wide 🌎

  1. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I?d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  3. I and my guys were checking the great key points on your web page while at once got a terrible feeling I never thanked the site owner for those techniques. All of the guys came for this reason stimulated to learn all of them and now have in fact been making the most of these things. Appreciate your actually being considerably helpful and then for getting this sort of terrific subjects most people are really wanting to understand about. Our own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.
