(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. First you fully charge a capacitor (C = 6.4 µF) with a 12V battery. Then you disconnect the battery and discharge the capacitor through a resistor (R = 3 Ohms) and an inductor (L = 2.0 x 10-3 H) in series.

2. What is the charge on the capacitor when you begin discharging at t= 0?

How long does it take for the charge amplitude to fall to one tenth of initial value?

At what time does the charge first fall to one tenth of its initial value?

3. The attempt at a solution

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
