Unformatted text preview: capacitance, which was always a little different than the rated capacitance. When the capacitor was discharged across the bulbs, the graph of charge over time still looked like a normal discharge graph; even after the bulbs were no longer lit, the resistance of the bulbs remained constant, and o the circuit did not change. One possibility for the error in the measured capacitance is that the capacitors’ rating is not exact. It is within a certain tolerance, and so depending on how accurate the measurement is, the actual capacitance may vary from the rated capacitance. Questions- See attached sheets....
