## Homework Statement

The circuit used in this problem is attached as an image. I made this in gEDA (the circuit is from the homework problem, I just didn't feel like using a scanner to get the image)

The 2-microfarad capacitor shown in the circuit attached is fully charged by closing switch S1 and keeping switch S2 open, thus connecting the capacitor to the 2,000 Volt power supply. At a later time, switch S1 is opened. Switch S2 is then closed. The 6-micro farad capacitor is initially uncharged. Determine the initial current in teh resistor the instant after switched S2 is closed.

## Homework Equations

I = [itex]\frac{-q

_{0}}{RC}[/itex] e

^{-t/RC}(discharging a capacitor)

V = IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not sure how to go about this, and I don't have an answer key. Should I calculate using the fact that the 2 micro farad capacitor is discharging, or the fact that the 6 microfarad capacitor is charing?

Thanks!
