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)
