EXPERIMENT 1

PERFORMANCE OF DC CIRCUITS

Part I:

Identification of resistors and capacitors values by color coding

Objectives:

To f
amiliarize the student with the color coding system for resistors and capacitors.

To examine various types of capacitors (ceramic, polyester, tantalum, electrolytic) and resistors
(thermal, carbon film, metal film).

Apparatus Required:

Ohmmeter

RLC meter

Procedure:

1.

Pick up three resistors according to their color coding.

2.

Use the ohmmeter to measure the resistances of these resistors and fill in Table 1, given:

3.

Check whether
%e

is within its tolerance range.

4.

Connect all the resistors in series and repea
t step 2.

5.

Connect all the resistors in parallel and repeat step 2.

6.

Repeat the above steps and fill Table 2 for three different capacitors using the capacitor color code sheet.
Use the RLC meter at the common testing station for measurement.

7.

Try to identif
y the different types of resistors according to their power ratings.

Discussion:

1.

Do the resistors values in Part I match their corresponding color coding? Is their any resistor value not
within its tolerance?

2.

Wh
at are the tolerance and power ratings of a series combination of equal resistors? What about a parallel
combination?

3.

Do the values of the measured and calculated voltages and currents of Part IIA match?

4.

Verify KVL and voltage division from the data of Par
t IIA.

5.

From the measured values of Part IIB, verify KCL and current division.

6.

Calculate the error for all currents and voltages of Table 5.

7.

Verify KVL and KCL from the readings of Part III.

8.

List some sources of errors in the experiment.
