Series and Parallel Capacitors

This is lab 6 of 10 in the course
In this lab, students will learn about capacitors, devices that store energy as electrostatic charge. They are common circuit components that have numerous applications both in series and parallel arrangements. Students will start by calculating capacitance in various configurations. Then, students will have the chance to build circuits and observe capacitors in action with the NI ELVIS III. Finally, students will test their knowledge by calculating the capacitance of a more advanced configuration.
