Resistance of Patient

  • #1

Homework Statement


When the defibrillation shock is applied, the capacitor discharges through the patient as shown in the diagram below:



The fraction of charge remaining on the capacitor 1.00 ms after it begins discharging is 0.300.

Calculate the resistance of the patient. Note: This will not be the resistance of the resistor in the previous RC circuit.

Give your answer in units of Ohms (Ω). You do not need to supply a unit with your answer.

Not sure where to go for this question?
