1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A) A DMM with its 10M(ohms symbol) internal resistance is connected to a 9.9 microF capacitor that has been charged to 10 V. Calculate the intial rate of discharge of the capacitor through the DMM in micro-Coulombs per second. Hint: You do not need exponentials for this calculations. B) Assuming this initial rate of discharge in the question above is maintained for 3 seconds, by what percentage would the capacitor be discharged? 2. Relevant equations How do I calculate the initial rate of discharge? My lab did not go over it but I Found this formula online but it only goes over time. T = ( C * V ) / I 3. The attempt at a solution I = V/R = (10 / 10 = 1 T = ( C * V ) / I = (3.9 * 10) / 1 = 39 seconds So the rate is .1 microF a second? And if it were discharged for 3 seconds it would be .3 which is 7.6% of the charge discharged. I am lost! Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
