    Laplace Circuit Analysis

    Please give a full and simplified answer to all parts of question 6 to aid me with revision.

    When a force F is applied across the face of the crystal, the current is generated. The interconnecting cable can be represented by a lumped capacitance CC. The input resistance of the amplifier, RL, acts READ MORE »
