The main objective of this experiment is to investigate the time needed to discharge a capacitor and determine the RC time constant of an RC series circuit. Students will also practice how to generate and acquire a signal using the data acquisition system. By measuring voltage across the resistor and capacitor, students will determine the value of unknown resistor/capacitor. | |
