A 6 uF capacitor is initially charged to 100V and then connected across a 600 ohm resistor. a) what is the initial charge on the capacitor?

  • Physics -

    Vo = 100/e^(t/RC).
    t = 0
    t/(RC) = 0/(RC) = 0
    Vo = 100/e^0 = 100/1 = 100 Volts.= Initial voltage across capacitor
    and resistor.
