Example 10. Using two channels on the oscilloscope in the following circuit will
see the voltage of the circuit in two places simultaneously.
The greater amplitude sinusoidal measured corresponds to the channel A (which is
the source voltage, 220 V, 50 Hz). Since we are using a scale of 100 V / div an
d the wave exceeds the three divisions, the peak value is more than 300 V (220x1
.4 = 311 V) to 220 RMS. The lower amplitude sine corresponds to channel B (stres
s on the resistance of 50 ohms). It is important to note that if we replace the
cable that goes from the GROUND connector of the oscilloscope to the negative po
le of the source (which is also connected to ground) for a ground connection, th
e circuit does not change at all and simplifies the design used.
In a circuit may have multiple connections to ground at various places symbolizi
ng that all these points are connected together to ground.
