5L20.20 - Power vs. Frequency (Export Version)
Demonstrate how power varies with frequency in an RLC circuit.
A capacitor, a lightbulb, a resistor and an inductor are all connected in series with a function generator and a speaker. The light bulb is a visual indication of the power consumed by the circuit. The frequency is heard through a speaker and the exact value can be read off of the function generator. The different circuit components can be taken out and rearranged to make RL, RC, LC, and RLC circuits.
Frequency Ranges when in following circuit patterns:
RLC = ~100Hz
RC = x > 100Hz
RL = 0Hz < x < 110Hz
LC = 50Hz < x < 250Hz
