These times correspond to the time contant of each circuit concerned. This is the principle used for selection of the two basic components constituting the delay circuits used for my project.
    My supervisor now ask me this question'' You are yet to tell me how you arrived at these parameter values i.e 470μf and 10.5k'' my response that the values are derived experimentally does not solve the problem.
    ''Can somebody please help me out?.''

    Your attachment did not work.

    Maybe you can try again using a more common format.

    Can l further experiment with Wheatstone Bridge and subsequently follow up the calculation procedures?, may be that will answer his questions.
    Thanks for the response.

    Your circuit cannot be seen. Try to post your circuit by another method.

    Unless we can see your circuit, we cannot help you.
