LR 1 We set up the circuit as the Figure 4.1 had drawn out. Once the circuit was set up, we then made the capacitors and the multimeter, a very small resistor, in parallel. Then since a capacitor and a resistor share the same voltage, the read out from the multimeter would be equivalent to the voltage going through the capacitor. Table 1.1: These are the values that we got from experimentally testing the voltages across the capacitor and also the values we had solved for in our pre-lab. The values from the pre-lab had uncertainties because the resistors had uncertainties and we had to take them in to account by adding up the uncertainties in our math calculations. For the math calculations look back at the pre-lab, question number 2. Capacitor Voltage (Experimental) Voltage (Solved) 3.3 μ F 3.14 V 3.13 V ± .0948 1 μ F 9.08 V 9.05 V ± .0427 When you add the uncertainties to our solved values you find that our experimental values where right in the correct range to our solved values.
