    I am student and not having any experience of working with oscilloscope. I started an experiment, where I have to measure Current - Volatge characteristics of a p-n junction (photo-diode) using an oscilloscope. I am applying voltage in steps and getting current. I note the mean value of current and the units are 'pAs'.

    Now to plot I-V characteristics, I need only the value of current (in pA and not in pAs). So should I multiply the output with the frequency of input light?
    Please explain me and help me to learn.

    Thank you :)
