RC circuits (28.4) 1. Charging of a capacitor The uncharged capacitor is connected in series with a battery and a resistor. The switch is closed at t = 0 , and the charges start to accumulate on the plates of the capacitor. V 0 C R 2 V 0 + + _ _ C R + _ During the charging process a current (flow of charges) will exist in the circuit.
