Have the switch in the position (2) for the long time. Measurements and calculations • Compute the value of capacitor voltage vc . • Measure vc. • Compare your measured and calculated values of vc. • How long is "a long time" for this circuit? 1.c (15 points) Comment Prepare to write down the value of vc every 15 seconds. This is easiest using alligator clips and monitoring voltage continuously. More set ­up • • • Construct the circuit of Figure P1 ­1. Have the switch in position (1) for a long time. Switch it to the down position (2) and simultaneously start timing. Measurements and calculations • Record the value of vc every 15 seconds for three minutes. (For example, throw the switch when the second hand on a watch is at zero seconds, or at the same time as the stopwatch feature on a digital watch is star...
