Analysis: Explanation of uncertainties: Uncertainties were given for R and C as 10% of the given value, thus from this the uncertainty for RC (the two multiplies together) was 20%. The uncertainty for the time was decided to be 0.5s, this was because it was difficult to watch both the number on the stopwatch and on the voltmeter and read the stop watch accurately and quick enough. Sample Calculations: High-Low Method- Uncertainty- Percent difference- Agreement- Vc-

Conclusion: Summary of Results: It was verified that when power is cut to a capacitor voltage does not drop out immediately, it rather exponentially declines. It was also verified that when power is cut is the same instant in which the
