A 9-Volt battery is used to charge a 280 mF capacitor over a 81 Ohms resistance.

How long will it take for the capacitor to reach 75% of its maximum charge?

What formula is relevant?

• Physical Science -

charging the capacitor formula;
Q=Q max (1-e ^-t/RC)

Q=qmax= 0.75
solve for t

• Physical Science -

So the Voltage is irrelevant?

• Physical Science -

Why wouldn't you use this formula?

Q=Qmax*e^(-t/RC)
