  1. May 29, 2010 #1
    1. Why is the voltmeter is better to be connected across the ammeter and the capacitor.
    The whole circuit contains ammeter, capacitor and a resistor connected in series while the experinement is to plot a graph of Q against V by record the constant I, then Q=It.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
