Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ive got some calculations to do on amount of charge on a capacitor with respect to t.

Formula for amount of charge on a capacitor is Q=5.7ln4.5t

I need to determine the rate of discharge with different values of t, t=5ms t=7.5ms

I know i need to differentiate the formula against time as it will give me the rate of charge.

Ive completely forgotten how to apply calculus and would sincerely appreciate any help and advice!

thank you
