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

Switch S in the figure below is closed at time t = 0, to begin charging an initially uncharged capacitor of capacitance C = 13.0 µF through a resistor of resistance R = 24.0 . At what time is the electric potential across the capacitor equal to that across the resistor?

2. Relevant equations

i = dq/dt

q = CE(1-e^-t/RC)

3. The attempt at a solution

I really don't even know where to start with this one
