Fourier Synthesizer
# 3C50.10


Description: Any periodic waveform can be expressed as an infinite sum of trigonometric functions, consisting of a sine or consine function and its successive harmonics. With this piece of equipment, you can demonstrate and investigate this mathematical idea, adding a succession of sine wave harmonics and viewing the results waveform on an oscilloscope.
