The AC/DC Electronics Laboratory dynamically teaches the basics of AC/DC circuits. It features banana jacks for computer connection, component springs that secure circuit components, a push button switch, light bulbs and sockets, potentiometer, coil, battery holder, storage tray, and an iron core. The AC/DC Electronics Laboratory can be used with an 850 or 550 Interface or as a stand-alone unit with D batteries. With PASCO Capstone and a Voltage Sensor, students can measure the electromotive force (EMF) created when a magnet is dropped through a coil, as well as the changes in magnetic flux caused by the magnet.

In this lab, students use a 2-axis magnetic field sensor and the AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the strength of the magnetic field at the center of a current-carrying coil depends on the coil current and radius.
In this lab, students will use a capacitance meter to measure the equivalent capacitance in simple series and parallel circuits. Then, they'll determine the equivalent capacitance of capacitors connected in series and parallel.
In this lab, students use an AC/DC electronics laboratory, a power supply, and a Magnaprobe™ wand to detect and compare the magnetic field pattern surrounding a bar magnet and a current-carrying coil.
In this lab, students will use a voltage–current sensor and an AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the potential differences across resistors and capacitors in a simple RC circuit differ when the capacitor is charging,...
In this lab, students will use a voltage–current sensor and an AC/DC electronics laboratory to measure the turn-on voltage of various colors of LEDs and then plot the turn-on voltage versus LED frequency to determine the value...
In this lab, students will use a voltage–current sensor and an AC/DC electronics laboratory to construct simple resistor circuits with resistors in series or parallel, or both (with at most one parallel loop of resistors), to...
