Homework Help: Electricity (charge on capacitor in circuit)

  1. Jul 7, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A capacitor of ad2b6439add47f1c1498736348-png.png is connected as shown in the circuit. The internal resistance of the battery is d2fddf8864ed75741498736351-png.png Amount of charge on capacitor plates will be :


    2. Relevant equations
    no relevant euqations given.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I dont even know how to begin with the question:(

    Also how do i apply kirchoff's law on the capacitor?Its not even on google.

    The problem supposes that the circuit has been connected for a long time, so it is in steady state.
    Connecting a capacitor to a voltage source, what drives current through the capacitor? If the voltage across the capacitor is equal to the voltage of the source, does current flow through the capacitor?

    For both of Kirchhoff's laws it doesn't matter at all if you use a resistor, a capacitor or anything.
