RC Time Constant Calculator

If a voltage is applied to a capacitor of Value C through a resistance of value R, the voltage across the capacitor rises slowly. The time constant is defined as the time it will take to charge to 63.21% of the final voltage value.

Following is the formula for time constant.

t = R * C
