Capacitors in alternating current circuits

Capacitors in alternating current circuits

Item no.: P1373600

  • Description
  • Scope of Supply
  • Downloads and Documents


The students should recognize that a capacitor represents a finitely large resistance in an alternating current circuit. The two experiments suggested are intended to result in qualitative and semi-quantitative statements on capacitive resistance.


  • No additional cable connections between the building blocks needed - clear arragned and quick setup
  • Contact saftey due to puzzle blocks system
  • Corrosion-free gold plated contacts
  • Doubled earning sucess: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen unterside


How does a capacitor act in an alternating current circuit?

Prove that a capacitor does not interrupt an alternating current circuit, and examine on what the current is dependent in an alternating current circuit containing a capacitor.
