## Homework Statement

In the circuit below the switch is initially open and both capacitors initially uncharged. All resistors have the same value R.

a.) Find the current through R2 just after the switch is closed.

b.) Find the current through R2 a long time after the switch has been closed.

c.) Describe qualitatively how you expect the current in R3 to behave after switch is closed.

## Homework Equations

V=IR

Kirchhoff's Rules

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have only attempted part a so far because I don't think I even did that part right. Well right after the switch is closed the capacitors are an open circuit right? So the current only goes through R1 and R2, so I if current goes up from the positive terminal of the battery and my loop is clockwise I got V-2R=0, so R=V/2.
