    Description

    This setup allows you to see the phase relationship between various components of a series RLC circuit◙operating at 60 Hz. An isolation transformer allows grounding of the series RLC circuit at a point which can be chosen by the demonstrator. The circuit below is for comparison of the current between the capacitor and the resistor in the RLC circuit. ◙◙
