CIRCUITDIAGRAM:

THEORY:
The wein bridge oscillator is a standard circuit for generating low frequencies in the range of 10 Hz to about 1MHz.The method used for getting +ve feedback in wein bridge oscillator  is to use two stages of  an   RC-coupled amplifier. Since one stage of the RC-coupled amplifier introduces a phase shift of 180 deg, two stages will introduces a phase shift of 360 deg. At the frequency of oscillations f the +ve feedback network shown in fig makes the input & output in the phase. The frequency of oscillations is given as
f =1/2π√R1C1R2C2
In addition to the positive feedback

PROCEDURE:
1.    Connections are made as per the circuit diagram
2.    Feed the output of the oscillator to a C.R.O by making adjustments in the   Potentiometer connected in the +ve feedback loop, try to obtain a stable sine  Wave.
3.    Measure the time period of the waveform obtained on CRO. & calculate the    Frequency of oscillations.
4.    Repeat the procedure for different values of capacitance.

OBSERVATION:
Given R=10kΩ, C=0.01μF
