Name: Jason Vazquez Partner: Xing Lin TA: Faisal Yaqoob Experiment #6 RC Circuits Equations: (1) C(Computer) = 1/RC (2) Aexp(Ct) + B (3) V(t) = V(0) exp (-t/RC) (4) V(t) = V(0)e -1 (5) q=CV Theory: Capacitors store charge. Equal and opposite charges placed on the two sides of the capacitor and produce a voltage difference between the two sides of the capacitor. When a capacitor is placed in series with a resistor R, the charges will move through resistor in a direction to reduce the total charges on the capacitor. The charge will decrease at a rapid rate, but as the stored charge decrease, the rate will decrease. The time required to charge or discharge a capacitor place in series with a resistor can be used to determine the end product of the resistance times the capacitance. Therefore, knowing either the resistance or capacitance, we can find the other value. Procedure: - Connect the volt outputs to the switch and to the side of the capacitor; with resistor on the other side of the capacitor. Be sure that the power supply is off.
