Abstract

The authors designed a rotating parallel-plate capacitor; one of the plates is assumed to turn about the common vertical axis through the centers of the square plates. We insert this capacitor into a series with a resistor, forming a RC circuit. We analyze the characteristics of charging and discharging scenarios on two different parallel tracks. On the first track we drive the circuit with a DC power supply. On the second track, we drive the circuit with an AC source. The analyses of the circuits encounter non-linear differential equations. We format the underlying equations into their generic forms. We then apply Mathematica [1], NDSolve to solve them. This work is an example showing how with the help of Mathematica one is able to augment the scope of the traditional studies.
