# How fast do capacitors discharge?

pls and thank you (for my school expo project)

Do they discharge to 0 volts?

V=V

_{0}x e^{-t}_{rc}RC is the product of the resistance you are discharging with, and t the time in seconds.

Mathematically, V never reaches 0, or it does in infinite time. We USUALLY say the "discharge time" is the time for t63% of the original voltage across the cap to decay.

Steve

remaining 36% as a unit and await 63% discharge of that remaining

voltage,

Never Reaching Zero...But that is ridiculous, any youngster knows it will zero out LOL :-D
