### When the output of the 555 timer Icpid 3 of 555 is high the capacitor is always charging where the capacitor discharge occurs when the output is low?

Thus, when the capacitor is charging, the voltage across the capacitor rises exponentially and the output voltage at pin 3 is high. Similarly, when the capacitor is discharging, the voltage across the capacitor falls exponentially and the output voltage at pin 3 is low.

### What is a 555 astable timer?

The 555 timer IC (integrated circuit) is very stable, relatively cheap and reliable. It may be used as monostable or astable. Astable means that the 555 can operate repeatedly, it will switch on, then off, then on, then off, continually. The 555 is sometimes called an oscillator.

**How can we get symmetrical waveform in 555 timer as an astable multivibrator?**

Explanation: Symmetrical square wave can be obtained by adding a clocked JK flip-flop to the output of Astable multivibrator. The clocked flip-flop acts as a binary divider to the times output and produces 50% duty cycle without any restriction on the choice of resistors.

## How do you calculate astable multivibrator?

Astable Multivibrators Periodic Time If the value of the capacitor C1 equals the value of the capacitor, C2, C1 = C2 and also the value of the base resistor R2 equals the value of the base resistor, R3, R2 = R3 then the total length of time of the Multivibrators cycle is given below for a symmetrical output waveform.

## How do you find the frequency of astable multivibrator?

To find the frequency, just take the reciprocal of the period or use the following formula:

- f =1 /T =1.44/ (R1 + 2*R2) * C1.
- = 1.44 / (68000 + 2 * 680000) * 0.000001= 1.00 Hz.
- D =(Th / (Th + Tl)) * 100.
- D =((R1 + R2)/(R1 + 2*R2)) * 100.
- D =((68000 + 680000)/(68000 + 2 * 680000)) * 100 = 52.38%
- (R1 + 2*R2) =1.44/ f*C1.
