Hey, everyone. Just a quick question here. If I have the following circuit, with it's switch initially opened, what will happen to the current through resistors 1 and 2, after I close the switch? http://img249.imageshack.us/img249/7716/showmeplkh6.gif [Broken] 1) When the switch is first closed, the magnitude of the current through R1 is ______ and the magnitude of the current through R2 is ______. My answer is: non-zero, non-zero My friend thinks: zero, non-zero Now, we are having a debate over this question. We both agree that the current through R2 is definitely non-zero; however we disagree on the current through R1. I think that there should be current through R1 because the capacitor has to get charged somehow. What do you think? Thanx in advance.
