RC circuit (Voltage of the capacitor at Series circuit


A resistor–capacitor circuit (RC circuit), or RC filter, is an electric circuit composed of resistors and capacitors driven by a voltage or current source. A first order RC circuit is composed of one resistor and one capacitor and is the simplest type of RC circuit.
The simplest RC circuit is a capacitor and a resistor in series. Viewing the circuit as a voltage divider, the voltage across the capacitor is related to the input voltage, the capacitance of the capacitor and the resistance of the resistor.
