Unformatted text preview: Tau = 1/slope = 1/0.0104 = 96.15s (RC measured) 4. In This part of the experiment, we observed charging of a capacitor through a resistor R. V was then measured at time intervals. See attached data sheet for tabulated data. ln(V) was then plotted vs. Time ln(V) vs Time y = 0.0103x  0.809932.521.510.5 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 180 Time (s) ln(V) Using the graph and the relationship Slope = 1/tau, Tau = 1/slope = 1/(0.0103) = 97.08 s (RC measured) 5. V1 RC calculated : R=2e8 ohms, C = 1e6 f RC = 2e14 s V1 sigma RC : V2 RC discharging: R = 2e8 ohms, C = 0.5e6 f RC = 100s V2 Sigma RC : V3 RC charging : R = 1.8e8 ohms, C = 1e6 f RC = 180 s V3 sigma RC : VII Questions : 2....
