Enter the initial voltage, time, resistance, and capacitance into the calculator. The calculator will display the total voltage discharged and remaining.

## Capacitor Discharge Formula

The following formula i used to calculate the discharge of voltage across a capacitor.

Vc = Vi * e^ -t/(R*C)

- Where Vc is the voltage discarched
- Vi is the initial voltage
- t is the total time
- R is the total resistance of the circuit
- C is the total capacitance of the circuit

How to calculator capacitor discharge

**First, determine the initial voltage**Either measure or calculator the initial voltage entering the capacitor.

**Next, determine the total resistance**Measure the total resistance of the capacitor.

**Next, determine the total capacitance**Measure the total capacitance of the capacitor.

**Finally, calculate the voltage discharge**Using the information from steps 1-3 and the equation above, calculate the total discharged voltage.

## FAQ
