What is the term for the time required for the capacitor in an RC circuit to be charged to 63.2% of the supply voltage?
One time constant.
From kd9fni:
1 time constant = time it takes to charge to 63.2% of the voltage, or discharge to 36.8% of the starting voltage.
2 time constants = charge to 86.5% or discharge to 13.5%.

What is the meaning of the term “time constant of an RC circuit”? The time required to charge the capacitor in the circuit to:
63.2% of the supply voltage.
From kd9fni:
1 time constant = time it takes to charge to 63.2% of the voltage, or discharge to 36.8% of the starting voltage.
2 time constants = charge to 86.5% or discharge to 13.5%.

What is the term for the time required for the current in an RL circuit to build up to 63.2% of the maximum value?
One time constant.
From kd9fni:
1 time constant = time it takes to charge to 63.2% of the voltage, or discharge to 36.8% of the starting voltage.
2 time constants = charge to 86.5% or discharge to 13.5%.

After two time constants, the capacitor in an RC circuit is charged to what percentage of the supply voltage?
86.5 %
From kd9fni:
1 time constant = time it takes to charge to 63.2% of the voltage, or discharge to 36.8% of the starting voltage.
2 time constants = charge to 86.5% or discharge to 13.5%.
