APPARATUS:
LOCATION:
     Charge and Discharge circuit
O2
  • To observe and measure the behavior of DC circuits including batteries, capacitors, light builbs and resistors.
  • Charge the capacitor with batteries, then discharge through a resistor or light bulb. You can measure the current and voltage as the capacitor charges and discharges.
