EXAMPLE#2: 555 timer calculator in astable mode:
c1=100µF, R1=R2=10 Kohm
tHIGH = 1.386 sec , tLOW = 0.693 sec, Pulse Frequency= 0.481 Hz , Pulse Period = 2.079 sec , Duty cycle = 66.67%

555 timer calculator in astable mode formula or equations

Following equations or formulas are used for 555 timer calculator in astable mode.

555 timer calculator astable mode

tHIGH = 0.693*C1*(R1+R2)
tLOW = 0.693*C1*R2
Pulse Frequency = 1/(tHIGH + tLOW)
Pulse Period = 1/Pulse Frequency
Duty Cycle = (R1+R2)/(R1+2*R2)
