In the following report we used an oscilloscope and voltage meter to find out six different types of waves along with the Volt Peak to Peak (Vpp), Period, and Frequency for each one. The first wave had a Vpp of 12v with period of 1ms which frequency equaled 1kHz. The second wave had a Vpp of 5v with a period of 1s which frequency equaled 1Hz. The third wave had a Vpp of 10v with a period of 1ms which frequency equaled 1MHz. The fourth wave had a Vpp of 1v with a period of 1ms which frequency equaled 1kHz. The fifth wave had a Vpp of 18v with a period of 1ms which frequency equaled 1mHz. The last wave had a Vpp a of 6v with a period of 1s which frequency equaled 1 mHz. The procedure for finding this on an oscilloscope is first off you need two pairs of red and black clips which are compatible with your model of voltage meter and oscilloscope. Next you want to plug them together using the red to red and black to black clips. Once you have them connected then you need to turn both machines on and make sure they are working properly. Next set the oscilloscope to the right frequency and as the signal comes in use the horizontal and vertical knob to clear up the signal until the image is perfectly visible. I repeated these step for my finding for the six waves of that will be listed on the following pages the first two waves was known as sine waves. The second two you will notice that they are known as saw tooth waves. Finally the last two waves would be known as square waves. Sine Wave 1 Sine Wave 2 Saw Tooth Wave 1 Saw Tooth Wave 2 Square Wave 1 Square Wave 2 Signal Type | Vpp | Period | Frequency | Sine Wave 1 | 12v | 1ms | 1kHz | Sine Wave 2 | 5v | 1s | 1Hz | Saw Tooth Wave 1 | 10v | 1ms | 1MHz | Saw Tooth Wave 2 | 1v | 1ms | 1kHz | Square Wave 1 | 18v | 1ms | 1mHz | Square Wave 2 | 6v | 1s | 1mHz
