Show a charge/discharge curve for a capacitor/inductor, with different kind of sources/loads.

Capacitor/inductor charge/discharge | Select curve to show |

Capacitor | Value of capacitor |

Inductor | Value of inductor |

Start U | Starting voltage for capacitor discharge |

Start I | Starting current for inductor discharge |

Load R | Resistive load for discharge |

Load I | Constant current load for discharge |

Load P | Constant power load for discharge |

Charge U | Charge voltage |

Charge R | Series resistor |

Charge I | Constant current charge |

The yellow curve is current and the white curve is voltage.

Time T | Time from start of charge/discharge |

Voltage U | Voltage accross capacitor/inductor |

Current i | Current in/out of capacitor/inductor |

Power P | Power flowing in/out of capacitor |

Energy E | Energy in capacitor/inductor |

Charge Q | Charge in capacitor |
