Charging and discharging a capacitor

 In the image below you see a DC voltage source connected with a resistor and a capacitor. There are two switches as well. One is always open, and the other is always closed. Therefore we only have two cases: the capacitor can either be charged or discharged.

 

Learning goals:
  • Modeling applications (Customized components)

 

 How does the capacitor's charging and discharging look like?

 Spend 50 seconds on charging the capacitor and then 50 seconds on discharging it

 

 

 Use PSpice to see if what you learned in theory matches the result you get from PSpice
