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

    Given an equation for charge passing through a point in a circuit versus time: q = 3t^3 – t^2. Which is the correct equation for current as a function of time?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Would it be: q', which would be 9t^2 - 2t

    Thanks a lot,

    yeah thats right you take the derivitive of q(t) with respect to t
