  • CHAPTER 5 AC PRETEST AND REVIEW202for a total of 10 volts. For the output sine wave, this measurement is 3 divisions at 2 VOLTS/DIV, for a total of 6 volts. This indicates that the circuit has decreased the input signal from 10 Vpp to 6 Vpp.2 divisionspeak-to-peakPhase shift3 divisionspeak-to-peakAlso note that that the peak of the output waveform shifts from the input wave-form, a phenomenon called phase shift. You learn more about how to calculate phase shift in Chapter 6.THE INDUCTOR IN AN AC CIRCUIT16  An inductor is a coil of wire, usually wound many times around a piece of soft iron. In some cases, the wire is wound around a nonconducting material.QUESTIONSA. Is the AC reactance of an inductor high or low? Why?
