Abstract (4) The purpose of this experiment was To measure capacitance and to investigate the exponential time dependence of charge accumulation and discharge on a capacitor plate and finally to find the effective capacitance of the series and parallel combinations of two different capacitors. We started by first turning on the Wavetek DMM and then turning the dial to the 2000 μF setting to read capacitance. Then we had to created four different circuits and test the voltage coming from each resister. Our results were the following: V 0 (V)= 3.99 R (Ω) = 327.1 u{R} (Ω)= 0.4 Time ( s ) Vol tage ( V ) Time ( s ) V o l t a g e ( Time ( s )
