Supposing we have an RC circuit (see figure)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As we increase R, what will happen to the visualized signal of E and V(capacitor) and V(resistor)?

And a general question about measuring the (Tao) [the one that equals to RC] BUT FROM THE OSCILLOSCOPE..

They mentioned it is the time for which V(resistor) decreases to half its initial value (but I still don't get it)

Thanks in advance
