Outline Section 28.7: RC Circuits A is a circuit with a resistor and a capacitor. It may also have a battery or other RC circuit voltage source. The current in an RC circuit always dies away over time:        where For an RC circuit without a battery, the voltage across the capacitor and the charge stored 
