Time Constant Quiz HTML5


These exercises allow you to verify that you have mastered the graphic method of determining the time constant of a system. You can click on the switch of the circuit to observe charge or discharge of the capacitor.

Click on the “Change” button to change the values.
Click on the “Take a test” button then type the correct response in the empty field or use the digital pad.
Click then slide the line segments onto the curve to help determine the correct value.

Learning goals

  • To practice the determination of the time constant from the time response.
  • Illustrate different types of voltage steps.
  • Represent the exponential nature of the transient response (in the case of a first order system).
