1. Set the trigger mode to NORMAL.

2. Adjust the trigger level so that it is above the maximum voltage of the input signal. Notice that thetrace remains fixed and that the trigger status displayed at the top right of the display goes from Trig’d to Trig?. This indicates that the channel 1 input has not met the trigger level.

3. Now switch the trigger to AUTO mode. Notice how the signal rolls when the signal is not triggered (either toohigh or low).

  • The SLOPE option selects which slope of the signal (rising or falling) will trigger the sweep.
  • The SOURCE option determines the channel that provides the trigger signal.

Practice with trigger options

1. Configure the function generator to produce a triangular waveform output at about 1 kHz.

2. Set the normal trigger to work on the channel connected to the function generator.

3. Make adjustments to the triggering so that you get a stable display of the triangle wave. Do not use autotriggering.

4. Set the trigger slope to rising (arrow up).

5. Adjust the amplitude of the function generator to be 1 V peak-to-peak, Vp-p,.

6. Adjust the oscilloscope sensitivity using the controls we’ve introduced (do not use AUTOSET) so that the waveform is as large as possible. Adjust the time scale so that atleast two and no more than five complete cycles are displayed.

7. Experiment with the trigger LEVEL control. Notice how it sets the position of the waveform relative to thehorizontal trigger position changes as the trigger level is adjusted.

8. You should be able to move the starting point of the trace back and forth along the ramp in the triangularwave. Again notice how the indicator switches to Trig? when the level is set above or below the top and bottom of the waveform.This indicates that the scope is not triggering and therefore not actively sampling data.

9. Set the trigger slope to Falling (arrow down) and observe that the trace now begins (relative to thehorizontal trigger position) on the falling ramp of the wave.

2.6 the cursor button (refer to figure 2)

CURSOR can be used to display vertical (time) or horizontal (voltage) cursors on the display.

  • Cursors can be adjusted using the knob to the left of the cursor button.
  • The SELECT button changes which cursor is being adjusted. The solid line is the cursor that is currently selected.
  • The values corresponding to the positions of the two cursors are displayed (next to the“@”icon), as well as their difference (next to the“∆”icon).
  • Use the cursors to measure the peak voltage (Vp-p) and the period of your triangle wave.

Adjust the function generator to create a different waveform and experiment with cursors, triggers andscales.

2.7 the save/recall button (refer to figure 2)

Press the SAVE/RECALL button to bring up the Save/Recall menu.

  • Under this menu, setup parameters and waveforms can be saved and recalled on the o-scope itself.
  • The oscilloscope can save data to a floppy disk or to four internal references.
  • Reference data can be analyzed like current data in the measurements and math menus.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
