Lab 5: RC Circuit
Objective: To graph the charge and discharge of a capacitor and confirm time as a constant
Principles:
T=R*C, in this case T is representing a time constant, R is resistance measured in and C is the
capacitan

Lab 2: Ohms Law
Objective: To observe and verify Ohms law as well as exercise methods to measure resistivity
Principles:
Ohms law essentially states that a conductor with a current running through it, should be
proportional to
