In a simple RC circuit, where you have an ac supply attached to a capacitor and a resistor in series, during the positive cycle the capacitor starts to charge and it will reach a certain percentage then during the negative cycle the capacitor will start to discharge through the resistor. Will the time taken for the capacitor to charge be equal to the time taken for the capacitor to discharge?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks in advance for the help
