Project 6.1 The High Pass Filter

This is the support page for the High Pass Filter project in Complete Electronics Self-Teaching Guide with Projects.

Parts List:

  • One 1 kΩ, 0.25-watt resistor.
  • One 0.016 µF capacitor. (You’ll probably find 0.016 µF capacitors listed as polypropylene film capacitors. A polypropylene film capacitor is made with different material than the more typical ceramic capacitor but performs the same function. If your supplier doesn’t carry 0.016 µF capacitors, you can use the closest value the supplier carries. Your results will be changed slightly but will show the same effect.)
  • One function generator.
  • One oscilloscope. (You can substitute a multimeter and measure Vout in rms voltage rather than peak-to-peak voltage.)
  • One breadboard
