Capacitors are generally not used to supply power to an electric circuit. Rather, they are electronic components that are incorporated into an electronic circuit. To understand the functioning and areas of application, you need to know how capacitors behave in a circuit.
On the following pages you get to know capacitors. You incorporate them into simple DC circuits. This helps to quickly understand their basic characteristics. Afterwards you build capacitors into circuits, as you know them from everyday life.
Before you can start with the first experiments, you need to make a few preparations.
