Electronic – Can you use Oscilloscope probes for a Function Generator

function generatoroscilloscope

I just bought a cheap function generator and have no test leads for it. I do have 2 pairs of oscilloscope probes with a 1X-10X switch on them. I am curious to know if I will get the same results with them?

As long as they're set to 1x, Sure!

You will get some interesting attenuation when set to 10X, and perhaps some interesting signal distortion.

I use probes set to 1X on a signal generator pretty regularly.
