Homework Help: Calculating time constant in RC circuit

  1. May 1, 2010 #1
    I know that T = RC

    I've tried different combinations of R (not really sure what Req to take) but none of them worked. Any one can show me the right way ?

    Have you tried taking the Thevenin equivalent for point a to b?

    No I haven't and it was suggested on another forum and it worked. Thank you :)
