Student experiment building relationship between charging and discharging rates and simple circuits.
- 1x Resistor Capacitor Inductor Network
- 1x Voltage Sensor (unshrouded)
- 8x Banana Plug Cord Sets, 30 cm Length
Students collect data to understand the relationship between charging and discharging rates and the capacitance and resistance in a simple circuit. The time constant is derived and exponential growth and decay are explored.
PASCO Advantage: The RC Circuit experiment is extremely simple and transparent to set up. It is very easy to measure the time to half charge. It is also easy to verify that the curve is exponential using the curve-fitting capability of PASCO Capstone software.
Designed for use with any of the following
- 850 Universal Interface
- 550 Universal Interface
- Charging and discharging a capacitor
- Exponential growth and decay
- Time constants
