A capacitor of capacitance C= 10mF, is charged using a battery of potential V, through a resistor of resistance R = 250 ohms.

the charge of the capacitor is given by

Q(t)=CV[1− e ^ (−t/RC)]

Find an expression for the current passing through the resistor as a function of time, and make a graph clearly indicating the initial values. how long will it take for the current passing through the resistor to drop to 37% of its max value?
