This assignment will introduce you to electronic circuits and the test equipment commonly used to measure voltage and current. If you need to review circuit concepts, start with the Electronics Primer page, and review your answers to Assignment 6, Part 2: electronics written problems.

This assignment has two parts:

  1. Part 1: A few questions to answer before you start your lab work.;
  2. Part 2: Build and measure circuits in the lab;

Submit your work on Stellar in a single PDF file with the naming convention <Lastname><Firstname>Assignment7.pdf.
