### Units for rotational impedance

Radians and unit analysis The comment by MrYouMath is correct. For the purposes of dimensional analysis, the radian is considered a dimensionless quantity and therefore does not need to be included. ...

### Square wave transfer function?

I thought I would expand a little on the answer offered by Karlo. Long story short, I would not try to calculate the analytical time response of a system to a square wave. That would be a serious ...

### Designing a Voltage Divider

R2 and RL are in parallel so the voltage across them will be the same so can be treated as a single resistor when thinking about the voltage across them. So Req(lower) = (1/R2 + 1/100kohms)^-1 Req(...

### Electrical potential and grounding in a circuity, why it works?

The issue is certainly NOT that the chassis ground is at -100V, it's absurd. The chassis ground by definition is at equal potential for power supply and load, you can treat it like one big wire that'...

### Arduino DAC to Speaker

Your understanding of the issues is good. Q1: It's not overkill at all. All of the elements you've mentioned are needed. Q2: The low-pass filter frequency needs to significantly attenuate all ...

### Is there current multiplier circuit?

My input is DC from a small DC motor which I use as a generator. My input current is 300 milliamps and I need 1200 milliamps as output. Is there some way to increase the output to 1200 milliamps ?...

### If I have multiple different DC voltage inputs, how do I get a stabilized output at an intermediate voltage?

If you are trying to get from 6VDC or 10VDC up to 16VDC, you can use a boost converter, and if you're trying to get from 24VDC to 16VDC you can use a buck converter or a "linear regulator". The ...

### Square wave transfer function?

You want to look for the Laplace transform of a square wave. Note: The transfer function $H(s)$ is the ratio of the Laplace transforms of output $Y(s)$ and input $U(s)$: $Y(s)=H(s)\cdot U(s)$ If ...

### Designing RLC circuits at specific frequencies for teaching use

Assuming that you have an $RLC$ circuit, the resonant frequency will be $$f_0 = \frac{1}{2\pi\sqrt{LC}}$$ so, theoretically, you can pick either $L$ or $C$ arbitrarily and then calculate the other ...

### How do they get more signals simultaneously inside a node of a neural network?

First off, neural networks are only very rarely done in hardware, as actual summation of electric signal. Much more often they are just programs that run on standard computers, simulating a network ...

### Building oscillating magnetic field circuit

To make sure the inductor will respond that fast, you need to solve for the size of the inductor (which will make your magnetic field) which will be resonant at 1000Hz when coupled with a capacitor of ...

### What signals are expected on the connectors for this 12V Volkswagen Scirroco wiper motor circuit

As indicted in the comments usually the VDC for traditional automotive is 12 VDC nominal, though in most cases it is 14 VDC. Looks like the below image is from a similar configuration. If the part ...

### What controls the gain in a BJT amplifier, and why does this circuit have a gain of unity?

In this circuit: The gain from Vin to Vout2 is about 1, and to Vout1 about -1. That the two gains have the same magnitude with opposite sign can be deduced from the fact that at first approximation, ...

### Can different analog and mixed signal devices be combined on a single chip

It is perfectly possible to build your own mixed circuit chip, but you will indeed need to learn quite a few things if you want to do it by yourself. First I would like to say that what you will do ...

### How to provide conditional locking to drawers?

Try a bi-stable lock/unlock mechanism per drawer. A solenoid or perhaps two flip the state of the lock. No power is needed to stay in any one state, only to flip states. Since the solenoids only ...

### How can I calculate overcurrent from over voltage for the AP9101C IC

don't know whether you resolved this. Answer: Your part has one of the lowest over current thresholds (60mV in table), pick a higher voltage. Unfortunately I can't see how the voltage translates to ...

### Designing a loaded voltage divider?

Your circuit works. Proper ground connection. Your battery would be +12V -(-8V) = 20V. Voltage at Point A = 12V, Point B = 9V, Point C = 4V and Point D = 0V. The circuit is a good place to start. ...

### No Voltage appearing on Pspice

I believe the voltage source you are looking for is Vsin, which is just a sin wave output. Aside from that as the other answer mentions only use one ground!
