Week #3: (9/21-25) Introduction to Diodes

Post by rjagodowski »

This week we will perform the first diode experiment Introduction to Diodes in D.C. Circuits. You will be provided with a printed copy in class/lab. A pdf is attached below. The pdf below is a newer version than the printed copy you will receive. The only differences between them are the updated course references (EET instead of ELEC).

A supporting Excel Chart was also added for your convenience. This file contains the charts used in the lab. Excel will be used throughout the course and lab to create tables and graphs of data. You are expected to become familiar with its capabilities as we work through the semester.

How to create Excel Chart and post here in the Forums as shown below. Your graph should look a bit better as mine was made using guesstimated values.

PROCEDURE:

1.) If you download the "Diode Lab #2 Charts v15.1.xlsx" file below and then double click on it on the computers in lab, it should automatically open up the file in Excel. Otherwise, open Excel then navigate to File>Open and open the file.

2.) As shown in class, fill in the charts on the "Step #2" sheet in the Excel file.

3.) Select the Vd and Id columns together, click on the "Insert" tab and select the "Scatter" graph with "Smooth lines and markers". You should now have a graph that looks similar to the one below.

4.) From Excel, use the Copy function pull down tab to select "Copy as Picture". Select "As shown on Screen" and "Picture" as your two options.

5.) Open the MS Paint program. This program should be under "All Programs" and "Accessories" on the Windows Menu.

6.) Paste your Excel chart into a new Paint screen.

7.) In Paint, click on "Crop". Then click File > Save As > jpeg and select the location to save the file. You might have to use the "Select" and "Rectangular Selection" before the "Crop" is enabled.

8.) Create or Edit your post in this Topic and Attach your picture. You can Preview your post before you Submit if you want to make sure it looks proper. You can select "Place inline" if you want the picture to be in a specific part of your post. To do so, put the cursor at the intended target area and the click on "Place Inline".
