1 Physics 2112 Unit 11 Today s oncept: ircuits Unit 11, Slide 1

2 Stuff you asked about.. what happens when one resistor is in parallel and one is in series with the capacitor Differential equations are tough trickier than the last few prelectures difference between equations for charging and discharging. How much are we expected to know about all these equations. The time constant and exponential decay The concepts were pretty easy to understand. I feel like adding time into the mix will cause some confusion, but at this point in time (no pun intended) I understand the majority of it (minus the equations for the time dependent graphs. more explanation and examples please. conceptually it makes sense to me, but mathematically i'm a little confused. I need to see some example problems being worked out. Unit 11, Slide 2
