(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In Figure P18.50, suppose that the switch has been closed for a length of time sufficiently long enough for the capacitor to become fully charged. (R = 12.0 k, R2 = 17.0 k, R3 = 1.00 k, V = 9.70 V)

The picture is under attachment

a) Find the steady-state current in each resistor.

I1 = µA?

I2 = µA?

I3 = µA ?

(b) Find the charge on the capacitor.

µC ?

2. Relevant equations

R = V / I

q = Q e^(-t/RC)

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, since after the switch is closed, I figured all 9.7 V goes to the first resistor, so I used R = V / I to get the current for the first one. But it's wrong.
