How to design a Capacitor (electronic circuit)?

You can easily design the Capacitor circuit by practicing the exercises given below. Here you can design and simulate your own electronic circuits with this Online Circuit Designer and Simulator.

Circuit Description:

This is a simple circuit involving a capacitor, which is a device that stores charge. As current flows into the capacitor, the voltage across the capacitor increases. As its voltage approaches the source voltage (the 5V voltage source shown on the left), the current flowing into the capacitor decreases.

Click on the switch to discharge the capacitor, and then click on it again to charge it again.

The scope below the circuit shows the voltage across the capacitor in green, and the current in yellow. -- Credits: Mr. Paul Falstad.

Nice work. What is the purpose of the dump matrix button. Can I get the plotted data as time vs voltage vs current.

Simulation page is not appeared. I downloaded java run time though its not working. It showing that plugin is not supported in google chrome and I allowed plugins in google chrome settings. Can any one help me?

In your URL bar, enter:


Click the Enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option.

Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page or Restart your browser.

Simulation is not functional. I did not see the enable NPAPI, only enable PPAPI. Please help. Thank you.
