Homework Help: Circuit with capacitor

  1. Apr 30, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Please see under attempt at a solution for my question.

    2. Relevant equations
    V=IR
    V=Q/C

    3. The attempt at a solution
    This was a conceptual question about currents I got it correct. Just for my knowledge I was wondering if R3,R1,R2, and the capacitor were all in parallel. I know R1,R2, and the capacitor are definitely all in parallel but I wasn't sure if R3 also was?

    What is the necessary condition for parallel components?
