K7-29. RLC Circuit - 0.6 Hz Transients
Demonstrate transients using a circuit with a very long time constant.
LRC circuit with very large inductor, battery and switch.
The circuit below is used to show transients of long duration. Closing the switch charges the capacitor, and opening the switch discharges it. The voltage across the capacitor is viewed using a storage scope. This is an alternate demonstration to K7-28 for times when multiple requests are made.
