the circuit is as shown. http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/6627/circuitg.jpg [Broken] now i have to find the current from the battery. now the book says since the capacitor is charged its branch will no more have any current and we can neglect that branch. now my qs is. after the capacitor is charged wont it work like a smaller emf battery and try to oppose the current of the main source in other branches(even if for a small time since the capacitor would discharge.) the reason i am asking this is that i am trying to take analogy of a charged capacitor with a battery(keeping the discharging point apart). also is it possible to find the voltage across that capacitor.
