    A capacitor C is charged from a 10V supply through a resistor, and is then fully discharged again so that its voltage cycles from 0 to 10V and back to 0. Find the energy dissipated in the resistor, the energy stored in the capacitor, and energy drawn from the voltage source in this cycle.

    Solution Summary

    We solve the amount of energy that has been stored in a capacitor in an RC circuit during the charging and discharging process. Also the dissipated energy in the resistor is calculated.
