Unshrouded Voltage Sensor designed for use with PASCO’s 550 or 850 Interface’s analog channel.
This voltage sensor plugs into any analog channel on a ScienceWorkshop Interface, the 850 Universal Interface, and the 550 Universal Interface. The voltage range and frequency response depend on the interface. When the voltage sensor is plugged into either the 550 or 850 Universal Interface, the sensor is automatically recognized.
|Voltage Range with 850 Interface||±20 V AC/DC (850 interface)|
|Voltage Range with other interface||±10 V AC/DC (other than 850)|
|Pin Configuration||8-pin DIN plug. Probe ends are standard banana plugs.Two alligator clip adapters included.|

Kirchhoff’s Junction Rule and Loop Rule form the basis of all circuit analysis. Here we verify the laws for a resistive circuit.
The purpose of this experiment is to verify Ohm’s Law for commercially manufactured resistors and to examine the limits of validity for Ohm’s Law. The behavior of resistors, a diode, and a light bulb are examined.
The purpose of this experiment is to investigate the characteristic curves (I vs. V) of various types of diodes and to determine their “turn-on” voltages.
The manner by which the voltage on a capacitor decreases is studied. The half-life for the decay is measured directly and also calculated using the capacitive time constant.
Series/Parallel circuits are reduced to an equivalent resistance and that resistance is verified by measuring the total current and total voltage. In a second stand-alone experiment, the behavior of lamps in series, parallel,...
The purpose of this experiment is to examine Faraday’s Law of Induction. A magnet will be dropped through a coil and the voltage across the coil graphed as a function of time. The total integrated flux as the magnet moves into...
