Capacitors Capacitors store charge + ++ – – – E +Q –Q ++++++ +++++ –––––––– d Q=CV Parallel plate capacitor plate area Dielectric permittivity ε=ε r ε 0 Units: farad [F]=[AsV -1 ] more usually μF, nF, pF 1

RC circuits + V0V0 R C 1 2 Initially V R =0 V C =0 1 Switch in Position “1” for a long time. Then instantly flips at time t = 0. Capacitor has a derivative! How do we analyze this? There are some tricks… 1.) What does the Circuit do up until the switch flips? (Switch has been at pos. 1 for a VERY long time. easy) 2). What does the circuit do a VERY long time AFTER the switch flips? (easy) 3). What can we say about the INSTANT after switch flips? (easy if you know trick) I + + ALWAYS start by asking these three questions: 5

The Trick!! Note for Todd : Put problem on board and work through these points! 6

RC circuits + V0V0 R C 1 2 Initially at t = 0 - V R =0 V C =0 I=0 1 2 differentiate wrt t Then at t = 0 + Must be that V C =0 If V C =0 then KVL says V R =V 0 and I=V 0 /R. Capacitor is acting like a short-circuit. Finally at t = +∞ V R =0 V C =V 0 I=0 I 7

Physics 3 June 2001 Notes for Todd: Try to do it cold and consult the backup slides if you run into trouble. 22

LCR circuit + V0V0 R C 1 2 L V(t) I(t)=0 for t<0 23

R, L, C circuits What if we have more than just one of each? What if we don’t have switches but have some other input instead? –Power from the wall socket comes as a sinusoid, wouldn’t it be good to solve such problems? Yes! There is a much better way! –Stay Tuned! 24
