ELEC 101, Spring 2005
Prof. Rich Kozick
Date Assigned: Monday, March 28, 2005
Date Due: Nothing to hand in this week!
- Exam 2
will be in-class on Wednesday, March 30.
The exam will be closed-book and closed-notes, except that you can
bring one page of 8.5 in. by 11 in. paper with notes and formulas,
along with a calculator.
The topics for the exam include the following.
The material is in Chapters 2 and 3 of the Bobrow text, and in the
notes that I distributed on sinusoids, phasors, and impedance.
We worked with this material in homework assignments 4-9 and
- Nodal analysis of circuits
- Op amps: ideal model with negative feedback (3 zeros),
applications (inverting, summing, D/A converter, buffer, etc.)
- Thevenin equivalent circuit model, maximum power transfer to a
- Capacitors and inductors: current-voltage formulas, series and
parallel equivalents, differential equations and solutions for
closing/opening switches, time constant.
- Sinusoidal response of circuits: phasors, impedance, frequency
response (Bode plot), frequency-selective filters (lowpass, highpass,
- Please make sure you have completed the Bode plots in
Lab 8, including your measured data and
the analytical formulas.
The measured and analytical results should agree closely over most
of the frequency range.
I will look for these plots the next time that I grade your lab
(probably at the end of the semester).
- In lab this week, we will work on a digital stopwatch
in Lab 9, using the documentation in the
materials distributed in class.
Matt Sharp will run this lab session.
- For the week of April 4, please read Sections 11.1-11.4
on digital logic in the Bobrow text.
