The RC circuit is shown schematically above with the alternating source replaced by a steady source. If a unit step is applied at time zero, then the capacitor voltage is given by V(C) = 1 - e

If the voltage after time T is set to zero(s moved from a to b), then the resulting transient response is shown below.

For 0 £ t £ T the response is V

For T < t £ ¥ the response is V

For t < T , V

fot t > T , V
