Capacitive Circuits in Multisim

This week’s lab is based on the application of circuit analysis techniques to a capacitive

circuit in Multisim.

  1. Watch the video lecture entitled “Week 3 – Capacitor Op-Amp Circuit in Multisim.

  1. Construct Figure 7.36 in Chapter 7 (Example 7.11) with Vs = 3sin200tV, R1=20kohms,

Cf=5uF, and Vc(0) = 1.5 and find the output voltage ‘Vout’.

  1. Interchange the positions of the capacitor and resistor and compute the output voltage

‘Vout’ and record the values in the table below.

  •                                                                                     Measured  Vout              Calculated Vout
  •  Correct positions of R1 and Cf
  • Interchanged positions of R1 and Cf
  1. Construct Figure 7.36 from Chapter 7 in Multisim.

a. Use the function generator to provide Vs to the circuit and run simulation to measure

the Vout using Oscilloscope. (Use 5% tolerances for the resistor)

b. Interchange the positions of the resistor and capacitor and run the simulation to record

the measurements of ‘Vout’ in the table above. (Use 5% tolerances for each of the


c. Take the screen capture for the measurements for ‘Vout’.

  1. Answer the following questions:

a. Are the measured values same as calculated values? If not, explain why they are


b. What type of a circuit does Figure 7.36 represent? Provide a practical use of this kind of

Op Amp Circuits.

c. When you interchange the resistor and capacitor, what type of a circuit is obtained?

Provide a practical use of this kind of Op Amp Circuits.

d. Use the results obtained from ‘Vout’ to explain the differences in these two circuits.

  1. Create a new word document called “Lab3_StudentID.docx” with your GID substituted

into the file name.

Add Multisim files as an attachment.
