Measuring frequency

Hi all! I need to make a coil that has a specific inductance. I don't have that meter, but I just noticed that my 2204 can measure frequency. If I have a known Cap and connect my winding to it, I can measure the frequency and then figure out what my inductance is (in theory). I just don't know where...

2204 and Frequency Counter

I have a lab final that is asking me to measure at a point using a "frequency counter". Does my 2204 have this?

Vrms

Vrms = Vp*.707, right? My Picoscope software only offers Vpp, or AC rms. I have displayed right now a source of 22.18Vpp @ 105.5Hz. Dividing by 2 for Vp I get 11.09Vp. Multiplying by .707. I get 7.841 Vrms. My display says 7.683 Vrms. Why the difference? I am running 6.2.13.0.

Thanks

2204 Oscope

The spec say it can handle +/-20V. Is that Vrms, Vp, or Vpp?

Thanks!!!

sweep mode

Hi!

Can I step through the sweep mode? If I stop measuring to see the results, the sweep continues. I'd like to be able to step through it for things such as resonance.

Thanks!!!

2204

I'm a bit confused. Does my new 2204 scope have a built in funtion generator, or do I need to buy one?

Thanks!!!
