Capacitors are used to store electric charge in a circuit. They also allow current or voltage to change at a controlled pace. The circuit time constant is found by using the following formula: • At one time constant in an RC circuit, the values for current and voltage have reached 63 percent of their final values. At five time constants, they have reached their final values. • Capacitors in parallel are added to find the total capacitance. • Capacitors in series are treated the same as resistors in parallel to find a total capacitance.

7 V, the diode has such a high resistance that it limits the current flow to a very low value. This characteristic knee voltage is sometimes referred to as a threshold voltage. 3 V. Question What is the knee voltage for the diode you used? 3 V. 11. The knee voltage is also a limiting voltage. That is, it is the highest voltage that can be obtained across the diode in the forward direction. Questions A. Which has the higher limiting voltage, germanium or silicon? B.
