Resistance with Capacitance in an alternating electric system What’s important to know? Tau, is not time but has the same units R is resistance C is capacitance Tau = R*C
Lakes and Streams Filling up the lake is like charging Draining the lake is like discharging The amount of energy depends on the amount of stuff, (capacitor) and the rate at which it is released, (resistor)

Unformatted text preview: Volts Time [s] .37 V max V max Difference is Tau WHAT DO WE DO WITH THAT DATA τ = R*C ? 200 700 800 1000 Resistance [Ohms] 40 120 200 220 Tau in micro seconds Regression line will have a slope with R^2 value. This is C! Important Notes • Do have plots for all five resistance values, assume 5% for the resistor box. These must be sketched in the graph paper provided in the lab manual. • Do have error for your Vmax and .63 Vmax values, use the scope deviation. • Do have error estimates for you Tau values! • Do have error estimates for your C values! • Use the min max method! • Lets look at an example...

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
