ELT-2060: Electronics I Lab xx Lab Title Performed by: Ima Student Date performed: mm/dd/yyyy Date report submitted: mm/dd/yyyy Lab Partner: Hesa/Shesa Partner Laboratory Instructor: Dr. Esposito Introduction (or Objective) The introduction should be written so that a student not skilled in electronics could get a good idea of what your report is about and what you did in lab. The objective should include a short statement describing the purpose or goal of the lab, i.e., what you hoped or expected to see. Avoid making overly general statements. Instead be as specific as you can. The objective section should raise a question that is answered by the Conclusion. Note that the Objective is generally supplied in the lab handout. Theory/Background In this section include whatever theory or background is required to explain the results (or intended results) of the lab. In some labs it might be necessary to derive formula. In other labs it might be more appropriate to give an overview of background material. Change the name of this section to suit the needs of your particular lab. Hardware/Software Used Use this section to list the specific hardware/software you used in your lab. For example: • Proto-board • TL082 Opamp • 2N3904 NPN Transistor • Oscilloscope • MultiSim Procedure In this section describe the procedure you used during the lab. Include circuit schematics, PCB layouts, or otherwise describe the physical hardware you designed in your lab. This would be a good place to describe the operation of any hardware or software provided to you. It would also be a good place to describe any testing plan you developed for the hardware or software you created. Be sure to give enough detail so that someone with a similar technical background as yourself could reproduce your results from the information you provide. Any descriptions of the procedure you write should always be written in the past tense and should not be a word for word repeat of the lab handout. In fact, it is usually best to reference the lab handout and minimize any detailed discussion of the procedure, except in cases where there were deviations from the given procedure. It is usually a good idea to mention the procedure associated with each result that you discuss. Example: 1. We followed the procedure in the laboratory manual for step #1 in setting up the following circuit (draw circuit and include with your report): Data/Test Results In this section include your data. If you made measurements of a circuit, include the raw measurements here, probably in tabular form. This is also an appropriate section to include computed data (numbers calculated from the raw data), theoretical results along with percent errors, graphs, sketches, and oscilloscope waveforms. If you wrote software for your lab, include the results of your testing in this section. You may wish to rename this section to more accurately reflect its content. Include diagrams, tables, graphs, or whatever else you feel will yield a clear description of the results. Be sure to present all of the results requested by the lab handout. Example: 1. We checked the wiring, turned on the power, and took the following measurements using our DMM. Note: it was tricky trying to insert the ammeter to make the current measurements. (include table with your report…example below): Theory Experimental Is I510 I1500 Rtotal= Rtotal =10V/Is or Rtotal = measure without supply Discussion Use this section to interpret the results you presented in the Data section. What do your results mean? What is the significance of them? What problems did you encounter in the lab and how did you solve them? Did you see what you had expected? If not, why not? You can also use this section to answer any explicit questions in the lab handout. Conclusion This section should be brief statement of the conclusion(s) you can draw from your lab results. The conclusion should directly answer the question raised in the Objective section. Avoid discussing your results here (use the Discussion section for that). Also avoid concluding things that are not a direct consequent of your lab results (even if they are true). You may also want to include your written thoughts on the significance of the lab exercise such as how the circuit(s) you built might be applied in equipment used by consumers or in the workplace. What did you learn from this lab that will help you as a future technician or engineer? NOTE: Files are to be named: ELT2060F15LABxxW_Last Name, First Name (for Williston) ________________________________________ Appendix References In this section put any relevant references used to support your report. This includes printed documents, web URLs, and references to data sheets, etc.
Module Overview Summary of Module Description For full details, go to Module Descriptor. Aims The aim of this module is to: • Develop individuals for a career in business and management • Enhance and develop employability , professional and lifelong learning skills and personal development Learning Outcomes Learners will be able to critically evaluate the acquisition of a range of academic and professional skills using a number of theoretical frameworks. Assessment – Summary Category Assessment Description Duration Word Count Weight (%) Written Assignment Essay 1 Reflective Essay N/A 3000 45 For full details, go to Assessment. Additional Information Remember that a variety of Resources is available to support your learning materials.Skills and character audit This document provides an initial picture of your skills and character. It will also provide the basis of further documents that make up the first assignment on the module. It is based on the skills statements that form a fundamental part of your Masters programme which were approved by a validation panel that consisted of members of staff in the Business School, academic staff from other higher education institutions and employers. The statements in the form are there for you and you will not be judged on whether your responses are positive or negative. The responses should enable you to identify what you are good or bad at from which you can create a personal SLOT analysis (Strengths, Limitations, Opportunities, Threats). From this SLOT analysis you can then concentrate on developing certain areas that will enhance your academic and professional development. We would very much like to” get to know” you through this document and would encourage you to also complete the notes section. In this you could give us a rationale for your responses to the questions. As a guide to how you should gauge your response consider the following: Strongly agree – I have a wide range of experience in this area and have been commended by a tutor or employer for my efforts in this area Agree – I am comfortable with this aspect and have been able to demonstrate my ability Disagree – I am Ok with this but realise that I do need to improve Strongly disagree – I know I am weak in this area and need to focus on this as I could fine this weakness to be detrimental to my progression Explain why – please take the room to consider the reasons for your answer as this is the reflection that is of most value. Do not worry if your section spills onto the next page. Intellectual (thinking) skills Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree I am a creative person who can adapt my thinking to circumstances I am able to organise my thoughts, analyse, synthesise and critically appraise situations I can identify assumptions, evaluate statements in terms of evidence, detect false logic or reasoning, identify implicit values, define terms adequately and generalise appropriately Explain why: Professional/Vocational skills Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree I use a wide range of techniques in approaching and solving problems. I am comfortable with a range of research techniques I am able to analyse and interpret quantitative data I am able to analyse and interpret qualitative data My leadership skills are well developed and I can adapt them to different situations I am able to manage people effectively Motivating myself and others comes easy to me I am aware of my responsibilities to myself, the organisation and other people I treat people with respect and consideration Explain why: Key/Common skills Strongly Agree Agree Disagree Strongly Disagree I am able to use mathematical techniques to analyse data I can effectively interpret numerical data including tables and charts I am able to use a wide range of software on a PC I use a range Information Technology devices to communicate and access information I am a good listener I am able to communicate my ideas well in a face-to-face situation I can adapt my written style to suit an audiences needs I am comfortable presenting my ideas to an audience Whenever I have completed a task I always reflect on the experience with a view to seeking continuous improvement I manage my time effectively I am always prompt when asked to complete a task I am aware of the need to be sensitive to the cultural differences to which I have been exposed I am keen to learn about other people and their country and culture I enjoy working with others to complete a task I know my own character and am sensitive of this in a group situation I understand that a group is made of individuals and I am sensitive to the needs and preferences of others I will always ensure that I get my views across in a meeting I am willing to accept the viewpoint of others I always give 100% in a group task Explain why: SLOT Analysis Having responded to the statements above you should now be in a position to look forward and recognise those areas on which your development will be based. The SLOT analysis can help you to arrange this. Strengths – can be those skills and characteristics to which you have responded positively to in the previous section. It is worth noting that whilst you may be strong in these areas that does not mean you ignore their development. Indeed you may be able to utilise these strengths in the development of areas identified as weaknesses or to overcome strengths, this will enhance those skills and characteristics. Limitations – All of us can identify some sort of limitation to our skills. None of us should be afraid of doing this as this is the first stage on the improvement and development of these weaknesses. Opportunities – These arise or can be created. When thinking of this look ahead at opportunities that will arise in a professional, academic or social context within which your development can take place. Threats – Many threats from your development can come from within – your own characteristics e.g. poor time management can lead to missing deadlines. However we could equally identify a busy lifestyle as a threat to our development. Once again think widely in terms of where the threat will come from. Do not worry if you find that a strength can also be a limitation. This is often true as a characteristic you have may be strength in one situation but a limitation in another. E.g. you may be an assertive person, which is positive, but this could be negative in a group situation. Please try and elaborate this in the notes section at the foot of the table. SLOT Analysis (you may need to use two pages to set out this analysis) Strengths Limitations Opportunities Threats Analysis of the Bullet points in the SLOT table Objectives Having undertaken some analysis of your skills and characteristics the aim of this next section is to identify various aspects of your development during the course of this module, other modules on your course, and extra-curricular activities. Make sure the objectives are SMART:- S – Specific. Clearly identified from the exercises undertaken M – Measurable. The outcomes can be easily demonstrated (to yourself, and where possible others) A – Achievable. They can be done given the opportunities available to you R – Relevant. They form part of your development either on this award, in your employability prospects or in your current job role T – Timebound. They can be achieved within a given timescale Whilst there are 5 rows in the table below, please feel free to add more. However be sure that you need to do this development and that they fit within the scope of the above criteria. Area What I am going to do. How I am going to do it When I am going to do it by Force Field Analysis This technique was designed by Kurt Lewin (1947 and 1953). In the business world it is used for decision making, looking at forces that need to be considered when implementing change – it can be said to be a specialised method of weighing up the pros and cons of a decision. Having looked at your personal strengths and weaknesses we would like you to use this technique to become aware of those factors that will help/hinder, give you motivation for or may act against, your personal development. Whilst you could do this for each of your objectives we want you to think in terms of where you would like to be at the end of your Masters programme. In the central pillar, put in a statement of where you want to be at the end of the course. Then in the arrows either side look at those factors/forces that may work in your favour. Be realistic and please add as many arrows that you think may be necessary; use a separate page for the module if it makes it easier to structure your thoughts. Forces or factors working for achieving your desired outcome Where I want to be Forces or factors against working against you achieving your desired outcome

Grading: 15 total points (10 points for completeness + 5 points for one randomly chosen problem graded for correctness) 1. Water flows at a steady rate up a vertical pipe and out a nozzle into open air. The pipe diameter is 1 inch and the nozzle diameter is 0.5 inches. (a) Determine the minimum pressure that would be required at section 1 (shown in the figure below) to produce a fluid velocity of 30 ft/s at the nozzle (section 2). (b) If the pipe was inverted, determine the minimum pressure that would be required at section 1 to maintain the 30 ft/s velocity at the nozzle. 2. Water flows from a large tank through a small pipe with a diameter of 5 cm. A mercury manometer is placed along the pipe. Assuming the flow is frictionless, (a) estimate the velocity of the water in the pipe and (b) determine the rate of discharge (i.e. volumetric flow rate) from the tank. 3. An engineer is designing a suit for a race car driver and wants to supply cooling air to the suit from an air inlet on the body of the race car. The air speed at the inlet location must be 65 mph when the race car is traveling at 230 mph. Under these conditions, what would be the static pressure at the proposed inlet location? 4. Air flows downward toward a horizontal flat plate. The velocity field is given by ? = (??! − ??!)(2 + cos ??) where a = 5 s-1, ω = 2π s-1, and x and y (measured in meters) are horizontal and vertically upward, respectively, and t is in seconds. (a) Obtain an algebraic equation for a streamline at t = 0. (b) Plot the streamline that passes through point (x,y) = (3,3) at this instant.
Programming Assignment 7: Poker (5-Card Draw) II. Prerequisites: Before starting this programming assignment, participants should be able to: Apply and implement pointers in C Pass output parameters to functions Analyze a basic set of requirements and apply top-down design principles for a problem Apply repetition structures within an algorithm Construct while (), for (), or do-while () loops in C Compose C programs consisting of sequential, conditional, and iterative statements Eliminate redundancy within a program by applying loops and functions Create structure charts for a given problem Open and close files Read, write to, and update files Manipulate file handles Apply standard library functions: fopen (), fclose (), fscanf (), and fprintf () Apply and implement pointers 2-dimenional arrays Define and apply structs in C Compose decision statements (“if” conditional statements) Create and utilize compound conditions Summarize topics from Hanly & Koffman Chapter 8 including: What is an array? Distinguishing between single dimensional and 2-dimentional arrays What is an index? III. Overview & Requirements: Write a program that allows a user to play 5-Card-Draw Poker against the computer. Start with the following example code supplied by Deitel & Deitel (example code). This will help you get started with the game of Poker. Please read this site to learn the rules of Poker http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_card_draw. Complete the following step and you will have a working Poker game!!! Adapted from Deitel & Deitel’s C How to Program (6th Edition): (1) In order to complete the game of 5-card-draw poker, you should complete the following functions: (a) (5 pts) Modify the card dealing function provided in the example code so that a five-card poker hand is dealt. (b) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains a pair. (c) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains two pairs. (d) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains three of a kind (e.g. three jacks). (e) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains four of a kind (e.g. four aces). (f) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains a flush (i.e. all five cards of the same suit). (g) (5 pts) Write a function to determine if the hand contains a straight (i.e. five cards of consecutive face values). (2) (20 pts) Use the functions developed in (1) to deal two five-card poker hands, evaluate each hand, and determine which is the better hand. (3) (25 pts) Simulate the dealer. The dealer’s five-card hand is dealt “face down” so the player cannot see it. The program should then evaluate the dealer’s hand, and based on the quality of the hand, the dealer should draw one, two, or three more cards to replace the corresponding number of unneeded cards in the original hand. The program should then re-evaluate the dealer’s hand. (4) (10 pts) Make the program handle the dealer’s five-card hand automatically. The player should be allowed to decide which cards of the player’s hand to replace. The program should then evaluate both hands and determine who wins. Now use the program to play 10 games against the computer. You should be able to test and modify or refine your Poker game based on these results!
