what is the resistance experienced by the capacitors in the circuit (diagram) ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i am actually supposed calculate the time taken during the discharging of capacitor using this formula -

[tex]V=V_oe^{-\frac{t}{CR}}[/tex]

what should the R there be ?

Since they are connected in parallel , would it be

[tex]\frac{1}{R_e}=\frac{1}{R_1}+\frac{1}{R_2}[/tex] ?

where R=R_e
