Diagram Schematics
Expected Results
Using the Voltage Divider Rule it can be seen how the signal is reduced due to the voltage drops across each resistor
Since each resistor has the same value, it can be seen that at each point the voltage drop was approximately 25% less than the voltage at the previous point

Diode

Half Wave Rectifier
The half wave rectifier is made up of a diode and a resistor
Used to eliminate either the negative or positive alteration of the input signal
The diode direction determines which half-cycle is eliminated
The signal distortion is due to the rectification of the forward biased diode
Comparing to the PSpice simulation, the waveforms are coincident for the first part of the signal.
The time difference and the phase shift of the output is due to propagation delay.
When the diode points toward the load, the output from the rectifier will be positive
When the diode points towards the transformer, the output from the rectifier will be negative

Describe what was demonstrated about signals in the laboratory.
Explain of how KVL is important and the differences between using different measuring tools.
What type of measurement gives you the most accurate measurement of signals?
What is distortion?

As the signal propagates through the circuit from the input to the output, there is an undesired change in the signal waveform.
This distortion can either be in the form of amplitude, frequency or phase distortion depending on the circuit.
