Re: capacitor

kyle forinash says:

So I guess the moral is to use a larger cap (so that the time constant is
in the range of the capability of the CBL) but a smaller resistor so that
the CBL does not become part of a voltage divider.

Alternatively, you could leave it as you had it, and make the result a
challange for the students. This would eat up more time, but will make a
lab more "experimental" (a la the real world) and less a demonstration.
