ISO School DC Electronics Report Help

I received a 78% on my DC electronics final and i asked my professor if i could do some sort of report to make up two points. I have to write a two page report on electronic testing equipment.

I am wondering if any one here has experience with either light duty or heavy duty electronic testing equipment.

I just need to write about what it does and briefly how it works.

thanx

well, not to be mean or anything..... shouldn't you be composing your own report?
i mean, i have tons of homework & i just read what i ought to. i don't look to others to complete my work.

luvs - LT is a good guy - he's just looking for a little first-hand knowledge, as opposed to someone writing his report for him.

OMG KE your still here. I have missed ya.

Luvs. I totally understand what you mean. I should have clarified my statement. Our books did not cover this hence why it is extra credit. I was looking for some sources that would help me. Which i did. when i am 2 points from a B i try to do anything to get it so i asked and he said write a report.

to me its very frustrating what professors do to students. Last semester i recieved a 89.87% in class and he would not take it to an even 90%. I was very frustrated.

However i did win a scholarship last week. I took state in an engineering comp. So a full one year pf free school for me. FINALLY. i have waited 3 years for this.

I know at one point in time you told me what you were studying but i am a guy and i sometimes forget.

Well - probably the most basic test instrument would be a VOM/DVOM - and you could expand into a discussion of Ohms Law (P/IE). You can also use an Oscilloscope to trace circuits - or if you want to analyze a DC circuit for RF generation you can use a frequency counter/analyzer ...

That should give you a couple of things to research ...

I researched what you told me and i found out about burden voltages for DMM's and analog meters. Also pulse generators

Since a VOM (analog volt-ohm meter) or DVOM (digital VOM) is probably the most basic test instrument - why not just a paper on it's theory of operation?

1) How does it measure voltage?
2) How does it measure resistance?
3) How does it detect the current flow? (the meter goes +/- based on where you put the red and black leads)

Here is the link to the Wikipedia page for Multimeters.

That should easily give you two pages for your paper.

i pretty much did a whole page on meters. I mostly talked about the moving coil operation. Now i just need to think what to write on pulse gereators.
