acting as an insulator and thus allowing for the capacitance plates to store more energy in an electric field. 3. (Section 7) Based on what you know about the bulb at what point in time is the current in the circuit the greatest? At what point is it the lowest? Do you think the current is still flowing after the bulb appears to go out?In this lab, the current in the circuit would be the greatest when the light bulb is the brightest and this is because the brightness of the bulb is proportional to the square of the current passing through it. Therefore, the current in the circuit would be the lowest when the light bulb is very dim or when the light bulb is off because then there would be almost no current passing through the circuit. In addition, after the light bulb appears to go out, I think that there was still some current flowing through the circuit from the capacitor discharging that’s why the light bulb lighted back up again. 4. (Section 8) From your fit of V(t) how would you determine Q(t)? Write the specific (this means numbers) equation given your data and circuit components.
