I. (55%) In order to measure the capacitance of an unknown capacitor, the following circuit is connected: At t=0 the switch is closed, the readings of the voltmeter were recorded every 5 seconds with the following outcome: t(seconds) V(Volts) 0 12.00 5 3.210 10 0.920 15 0.273 20 0.082 25 0.019 Note that the resistor has 4% tolerance. You may find the formulae on page 4 useful. a- Derive the relationship between V and t. b- Choose your variables such that you obtain a linear relationship between them. Switch C Voltmeter R V 8 Ω × 5 10 12V Power Supply 2
c- Use linear regression to find the slope of your line along with its error.
