RC Low-pass filter
1-50 kHz filter
- Design a low-pass RC filter with a break point between 1-50 kHz. The break point is the frequency at which the filter starts to attenuate the AC signal. For a Low pass filter, AC signals with a frequency above 1-50 kHz will start to be attenuated (not passed).
- Now construct the circuit using a non-polar capacitor.
- use a sinusoidal variable frequency oscillator to provide an input voltage to your filter.
- Measure the input and output voltages for at least 8 different frequencies which span the frequency range from 1 Hz to 1 MHz.
- Graph the -vs-
- measure the phase shift between and
- compare the theoretical and experimentally measured break frequencies.
- Calculate and expression for as a function of , , and .
- Compare the theoretical and experimental value for the phase shift .
- Sketch the phasor diagram for , , , and . Put the current along the real voltage axis.
- what is the phase shift for a DC input and a very-high frequency input?
- calculate and expression for the phase shift theta as a function of f, R, C and graph \theta -vs \nu.
