1. In today's experiment, what quantities will you measure directly, with sensors? 2. What are the units of capacitance? What are the units of resistance? 3. What are the units of (capacitance times resistance)? 4. A capacitor of capacitance "C" is fully charged, so that the voltage across it is exactly 5 volts. It is then connected to a resistor of resistance "R" and, starting at time "T", allowed to discharge. Write down an equation which gives the voltage across the capacitor as a function of time after "T".
