Capacitor Energy and Time Constant Calculator

This calculator computes the energy in a capacitor, given the voltage across it.

If you specify a load resistor it will also compute the time constant, or the time until the voltage drops to 37%, or charges to 63%.

Voltage across capacitor (V)
Capacitance (uF)
Load Resistance (Optional) (Ohms)
Energy (Joules)
Time Constant (seconds)

See our standard resistor calculator for a real world resistor value.


E= V^2*C/2


1/e = 36.8%
