This Excel workbook contains:

1. drawings of circuit elements (capacitor and resistor)

2. graphical representation of the relationship between a dc voltage applied to a resistor and the current that flows (Ohm's law)

3. graphical representation of the charging and discharging of a capacitor and the concept of a time constant, defining the rate at which a capacitor charges through a resistor

4. formula to create graphs of sinusoidal wave forms of voltage and resultant current that flows when the voltage is applied to a resistor, a capacitor and a combination of a resistor and capacitor in series and in parallel.
