RC Circuits

This is lab 7 of 10 in the course
In this lab, students will learn about resistor-capacitor (RC) circuits. These are circuits in which a resistor is placed in series with a capacitor and used to control the rate at which the capacitor charges or discharges. Like capacitors themselves, RC circuits have many applications in real-world circuitry. Students will make calculations for a given RC circuit and then build, modify, and measure that circuit with the NI ELVIS III. Students will also gain experience with two instruments: the function generator and the oscilloscope.
