1 - Use an oscilloscope to display the waveform of the aternating pd from a signal generator.

  • Increasing the output pd from the signal generator makes the oscilloscope trace taller. This shows that the peak value of the alternating pd has been made larger.
  • Increasing the frequency of the signal generator increase the number of cycles on the screen. This is because the number of cycles per second of alternating
