Brief capacitor charging RC time constant demonstration circuit

Table of Contents

When charging a capacitor through a resistor, the voltage changes very rapidly at first, and as the voltage of the capacitor rises, less current flows and the capacitor takes a lot longer to go up in voltage. It creates a distinct curve as shown in the video.
