Homework Help: How do I prove I=(V(sub b))/R*e^-t/RC experimentally

  1. Nov 18, 2012 #1
    1. I've been tasked with proving I=(V(sub b))/R*e^-t/RC on charging capacitor experimentally, with a function generator.



    2. Can you explain the graph here http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/electric/capchg.html

    Well, I have a dataset, and now, uh, what? How do I prove this monster with data

    Plot your data, both V vs t and V vs e^-t/RC.
