A testing circuit

The simple circuit here was given on a test.

When the voltage source is 5 t , the current i t 2 t 2 4 .

  1. What is voltage v out t ?
  2. What is the impedance Z at the frequency of the source?

Black-box circuit

You are given a circuit that has two terminals for attaching circuit elements.

When you attach a voltage source equaling t to the terminals, the current through the source equals 4 t 4 2 4 t . When no source is attached (open-circuited terminals),the voltage across the terminals has the form A 4 t φ .

  1. What will the terminal current be when you replace thesource by a short circuit?
  2. If you were to build a circuit that was identical (from the viewpoint of the terminals) to the givenone, what would your circuit be?
  3. For your circuit, what are A and φ ?

Solving a mystery circuit

Sammy must determine as much as he can about a mystery circuit by attaching elements to the terminal andmeasuring the resulting voltage. When he attaches a 1Ω resistor to the circuit's terminals, he measuresthe voltage across the terminals to be 3 t . When he attaches a 1F capacitor across the terminals,the voltage is now 3 2 t 4 .

  1. What voltage should he measure when he attaches nothing to the mystery circuit?
  2. What voltage should Sammy measure if he doubled the size of the capacitor to 2 F and attached it to thecircuit?

Find the load impedance

The depicted circuit has a transfer function between the output voltage and the source equal to H f -8 2 f 2 -8 2 f 2 4 6 f .

  1. Sketch the magnitude and phase of the transfer function.
  2. At what frequency does the phase equal 2 ?
  3. Find a circuit that corresponds to this loadimpedance. Is your answer unique? If so, show it to be so; if not, give another example.

Analog “hum” rejection

“Hum” refers to corruption from wall socket power that frequently sneaks intocircuits. “Hum” gets its name because it sounds like a persistent humming sound. We want to finda circuit that will remove hum from any signal. A Rice engineer suggests using a simple voltage divider circuit consisting of two series impedances.

  1. The impedance Z 1 is a resistor. The Rice engineer must decide between two circuits for the impedance Z 2 . Which of these will work?
  2. Picking one circuit that works, choose circuit elementvalues that will remove hum.
  3. Sketch the magnitude of the resulting frequency response.

An interesting circuit

  1. For the circuit shown in [link] , find the transfer function.
  2. What is the output voltage when the input has the form i in 5 2000 t ?

A simple circuit

You are given the depicted circuit .

  1. What is the transfer function between the source and the output voltage?
  2. What will the voltage be when the source equals t ?
  3. Many function generators produce a constant offset in addition to a sinusoid. If the source equals 1 t , what is theoutput voltage?

An interesting and useful circuit

The depicted circuit has interesting properties, which are exploited in high-performance oscilloscopes.

The portion of the circuit labeled "Oscilloscope" represents the scope's input impedance. R 2 1 and C 2 30 pF (note the label under the channel 1 input in the lab'soscilloscopes). A probe is a device to attach an oscilloscope to a circuit, and it has theindicated circuit inside it.

  1. Suppose for a moment that the probe is merely a wire and that the oscilloscope is attached to a circuitthat has a resistive Thévenin equivalent impedance. What would be the effect of theoscilloscope's input impedance on measured voltages?
  2. Using the node method, find the transfer function relating the indicated voltage to the source whenthe probe is used.
  3. Plot the magnitude and phase of this transfer function when R 1 9 and C 1 2 pF .
  4. For a particular relationship among the elementvalues, the transfer function is quite simple. Find that relationship and describe what is so specialabout it.
  5. The arrow through C 1 indicates that its value can be varied. Select the value for this capacitor to make the specialrelationship valid. What is the impedance seen by the circuit being measured for this special value?
