Can somebody confirm if this is correct? I'm trying to use a wye-delta transformation on capacitors to solve for equivalent capacitance, but to be super-precise, I want to put capacitance in terms of resistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I = C*(dV/dt)

V = IR, so I = V/R

V/R = C*(dV/dt)

(V*dt) = R*C* dV

Integrate both sides.

V*t = R*C*V

t = R*C which means that R = t/C

That makes sense, since people talk about a time constant, but I just want to be sure.
