Hey everyone, I'm new to using the Maxima software and I'm having some trouble. When I enter the following formula to be evaluated:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

diff(1-exp^(-t/R*C),t);

I get the following output:

[tex]\frac{log\left( exp\right) \,C}{{exp}^{\frac{t\,C}{R}}\,R}[/tex]

This doesn't look right, even if I simplify the numerator. Am I doing something wrong?
