I have (conceptual) questions about this question posted before: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=386071 On the second part of the question (part B: The switch is opened at t = 0s. At what time has the charge on the capacitor decreased to 12% of its initial value?), why does the capacitor only discharge through the 10 ohm and 40 ohm resistors? Why doesn't any charge reach the battery or the 60 ohm resistor? Thanks.
