In this lab, students will use a voltage–current sensor and an AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the potential differences across resistors and capacitors in a simple RC circuit differ when the capacitor is charging, discharging, and fully charged, and how these differences affect the current through each component in the circuit.Preview Download
