i can't figure this out. In an RC circuit, why is the maximum voltage of a capactior greater then the maximum voltage of a resistor? can anyone guide me in the right direction

It depends on the circuit. Circuits are possible where it is greater, smaller or the same.
for an simple RC circuit with one ideal DC voltage source, one resistor and one capacitor, either series or parallel, the maximum voltage would be the same.
