Introduction: A capacitor stores electric charges. As a capacitor charges, it gains 2/3 of it's initial charge. As it discharges, it loses 2/3 of the maximum charge that the capacitor can hold. Objective: Experiment 1: Test of Voltmeter The purpose of this experiment is to make sure that the voltmeter is in good working condition. Experiment 2: Discharging of the Capacitor In this experiment, the time constant is found based on the current of the discharging capacitor. Experiment 3: Charging of the Capacitor The objective of this experiment is to find the time constant of the circuit based on the current of the charging capacitor. Experiment 4: Fast Pulses The objective of this experiment is to find the time constant based on a discharging pattern. Experiment 5: Building a Pulsar A pulsar is used to observe the relationship between time constant, resistance, and capacitance. Methods and Apparatus: Experiment 1: Test of Voltmeter The capacitor is charged by connecting it to the battery. The battery is then disconnected, and if the
