Understand the operating principle of an LCR meter by measuring and calculating inductance and capacitance.

On the left is the measurement circuit. A high precision metal film resistor is recommended for Reference 1kΩ. The bottom left photo is a photo taken during measurement. I used the Function Generator below. |

The waveform below is the voltage and phase difference of VA1 VA2. |
||

On the left is data obtained from an oscilloscope. | ||

Calculate impedance and impedance phase angle based on the data obtained from the oscilloscope. |
