Capacitor Design Remote Lab


We've collaborated with PocketLab to allow users to upload Notebook files. Notebooks allow you to integrate live copies of a sim into an activity!



Title Capacitor Design Remote Lab
Description This lesson uses PocketLab Notebook software to deliver lessons to students with the simulation embedded. In this lesson, Students will be able to: Identify the variables that affect the capacitance and how each affects the capacitance. Determine the relationships between charge, voltage, and stored energy for a capacitor. Relate the design of the capacitor system to its ability to store energy. Explain how to use a capacitor to light a bulb. Describe what happens as charge drains away from a capacitor into a light bulb
