A 1.89 nF capacitor with an initial charge of 5.26 mC is discharged through a 1.34 kW resistor.

I'm supposed to find the maximum current in the resistor.

I know the maximum current through the resistor is -2.077 A from the equation I(t) = -(Q/RC)*e^(-t/RC) and I know how to find the terminal voltage - E - Ir, but I'm at a loss on how to find the maximum current in the resistor. Any help would be awesome.

Thanks a lot.
