Nice, thank you Karen.
I've mounted my own and used it to measure the inductance of a home made inductor using the impedance formula, the RMS voltage and the frequency.
You can take an inexpensive mirror and just glue a tooth pick to the speaker and attach the other end to the mirror. Just support the other end of the mirror so that the speaker can move the other end.
You hook up your signal generator to the speakers.
Take a laser pointer and set it up with the beam hitting the mirror so that the reflection shows on a flat surface.
As you generate signals, you should see the laser reflection move in response.
It should be pretty easy to set up.
It's double the fun with two as you can deflect the laser in both X and Y axis
You may want to take a look at Keysight's Educator's Training Kit Lab Guide.
(Lab 6 introduces the function generator.)
Educator’s Training Kit Lab Guide for 1000 X-Series Oscilloscopes
"This EE/Physics Student’s Oscilloscope Lab Guide and Tutorial is intended to be used with Keysight Technologies InfiniiVision 1000 X-Series oscilloscopes."
The scope models with the 'G' suffix have the function generator built in.
The lower cost non-generator equipped models also have some waveforms built into them, but no output connector, which is still useful for training purposes.
Have you used the built in function generator feature of your scope yet ? How does it compare with the one you have assembled in this episode ?
