I am trying to find the inductance of a inductor. I have tried many different methods such as putting the inductor in parallel with a capacitor to form a tank circuit and in series with a resistor with 1% tolerance.
The specific sites I used are:
Problems I encountered with links 1) The oscilloscope I use outputs voltage/div. I do not have a current probe.
2) When I run a sine wave, or any wave form, from the function generator. The waveform I see on the oscillator is the same wave I used from the function generator; Same frequency.
3) No option to adjust current output from function generator.
4) My oscilloscope outputs a normal sine wave. I don't see a decreasing/increasing sine wave.
5) I know that the readings are wrong because when I switch capacitors, the math shows that the inductance has changed. I have a fixed inductor that I used to test also.
Other stuff to mention:
