### Re: Circuit Lab B/C

Write the voltage drop equations for a capacitor and a resistor.
$V_C = \frac{Q}{C}$

$V_R = IR$

All right!

Describe the behavior of an RC circuit which is a) charging and b) discharging.

### Re: Circuit Lab B/C

All right!

Describe the behavior of an RC circuit which is a) charging and b) discharging.
a) The voltage through the resistor starts high and decays exponentially as the capacitor becomes saturated.  The charged capacitor has an extremely high voltage drop.
b) The voltage through the resistor starts high and decays exponentially as the capacitor discharges.  The capacitor acts as a voltage source in the absence of other sources.

Yep, your turn.

### Re: Circuit Lab B/C

Do current and voltage sources exist in real circuits?

Not ideal ones but they can be approximated; however, real-life sources have a limited amount of charge (which can be measured in ampere-hours) and have internal resistance that sometimes needs to be accounted for.
