Homework Help: Expression of the rate dV/dt

  1. May 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Obtain an expression for the rate (dV/dt) at which the voltage across a charging capacitor increases.
    Express your answer in terms of I, R, and C.

    2. The attempt at a solution

    I found that at time=0, dV/dt=EMF/RC
