1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 0.25μF capacitor is charged to 50V. It is then connected in series with a 25Ω resistor and a 100Ω resistor and allowed to discharge completely. What is the energy dissipated by the 25Ω resistor in Joules? 2. Relevant equations I'm assuming I need: P=V^2/R I(t)=I0*e^-(t/τ) τ=RC 3. The attempt at a solution So I used P=V^2/R to get that the power output of the 25Ω resistor is 100W. Then all I need is the time to find out how much energy was released. I know I cannot solve I(t) for when it is 0 without getting ∞. So I calculated the time it would take for the capacitor to be at an I=.01(I0), got a t=1.43*10^-4 secs. Then multiplying by the power, I got an energy release of .0144 J which is not correct. I'm not sure how else I would do this.
