Introduction- The purpose of this lab is to explore how charge and energy are stored in both series and parallel combinations of capacitors and to investigate how those combinations compare in terms of stared charge and stored energy. A capacitor is a physical device that store electric charge and energy. Useful Equations- Q = C ·ΔV E =1/2C(ΔV )² E=1/2Q · ΔV ΔV1=ΔV2=ΔVbattery(prarallel Q total = Q 1 + Q 2 (parallel) C total = C 1 + C 2 (parallel) Etotal=1/2Ceq(ΔV) ²=1/19C1+C2)( ΔV) ²=1/2C1(ΔV) ² + 1/2C2(ΔV) ² (parallel) Q total = Q 1 = Q 2 (series) ΔVbattery=ΔV1+ΔV2 1/Ceq=1/C1+1/C2 (series) ΔV battery =(Q total/ C eq ),ΔV 1 =(Q total/ C 1 ), ΔV 2 =(Q total/ C 2 ) (series) E total =1/2Q total ΔV battery =1/2Q total (ΔV 1 + ΔV 2 ) =1/2Q total ΔV 1 +1/2Q total ΔV 2 (series) Data- Series LED discharge time: 4 seconds Parallel LED discharge time: 16 seconds Single capacitor LED discharge time: 5 seconds (capacitor used: 470μF )

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
