Unformatted text preview: software. After all the data was stored, it was plotted against the time to calculate the time constant. Interference: The results were no different than what I expected. Conclusion: In conclusion, this lab allowed us to visualize study the connection between the charging and discharging times of a resistor connected in a series with a capacitor. The time constant of both were calculated to show that they have the same time constant. Data Sheet for RC Circuits and Time Constants: Charging: Ti=1.247 Tf=1.419 Tf-Ti=0.174 Discharging: Ti=2.493 Tf=2.668 Tf-Ti=0.175 % difference: 1.72%...
