As part of detailed optimization studies on Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) to be deployed in huge numbers in the INO-ICAL experiment, effects of integration time on the dispersion of the induced charge as well as position resolution of a prototype RPC was studied. Two, G10 based pickup panels of strip widths 5 mm and 3 mm were used in these studies. A double Gaussian function was used to fit the dispersion of the induced charge on the strips due to passage of cosmic ray muons through the RPC.
