Capacitors and RC Circuits
Students construct a circuit that charges and discharges a large capacitor through a light bulb. They create a model for their observations and test the model with current sensor data. They measure the voltage across a smaller capacitor as it is discharged through a resistor and calculate the capacitance from the data.PreviewDownload

The Wireless Current Sensor facilitates introductory and advanced explorations of the fundamental concepts of electricity and basic circuits.
Easily record voltage data while exploring fundamental circuit concepts, electrochemical batteries, and so much more.
This system is ideal for hands-on experimentation with basic circuits and includes more components than the Basic Set, as well as sensors. It is a component of the Essential Physics program.
Eliminate the mess of wires with this ideal system for learning basic circuits. Can be used standalone, with a multimeter, or with PASCO sensors for real-time data collection.
For use with PASCO Modular Circuits, this module can be placed anywhere in a circuit and wirelessly transmits current data to your devices.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
