Objective: Determine the AC resistance in a circuit with capacitive and resistive loads
In AC circuits, not only ohmic resistance needs to be taken into account but also the resistance due to capacitive loads. The combination of the two may be connected in series or parallel. This has an effect on both the amplitudes and phase of the current and voltage. In the experiment, this will be investigated using an oscilloscope and a function generator supplying alternating current with frequencies between 50 and 2000 Hz.
