What is the voltage across a capacitor after a time of two constants when a. charging from zero voltage and b. discharging from a fully charged condition?

  • physics -

    U₀ is the max charge of capacitor.

    Discharging
    U=U₀exp(-t/T)=
    =U₀exp(-2T/T)=
    =U₀exp(-2)=0.135U₀

    Charging
    U=U₀{1-exp(-t/T)}=
    = U₀{1-exp(-2)}= U₀(1-0.135)=0.865U₀
