1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm really looking for help with A.) because I think that if I could figure out A.) the rest should be ok. So, here are all parts of the question, but I'm really only concerned with A at the moment! The diagram below depicts an RC-circuit where C = 5.40 F, R0 = 14.5Ω , R1 = 24.5 Ω, R2 = 27.5 Ω, and V = 7.50 Volts. The capacitor is initially uncharged. This is how I drew my currents etc: The circles are for Kirchoff Loops I tried to construct, and they're going clockwise. Along with a loop around the outside of the circuit. A.) What is the current through R1 immediately after the switch S is closed? B.) What is the current through R2 immediately after the switch S is closed? C.) What is the current through the capacitor immediately after the switch S is closed? D.) What is the current through R1 after the switch S has been closed for a very long time? Assume that the battery does not go dead. E.) What is the current through R2 after the switch S has been closed for a very long time? Assume that the battery does not go dead. 2. Relevant equations V=IR C=(Q/V) 3. The attempt at a solution According to Kirchoff's Laws: I1= I2 + I3 So, since V=IR and R1 and R2 are || : I1 = (Vparallel/R1)+(Vparallel/R2) --> I1= V*(1/R1 + 1/R2) Therefore: I1/(1/R2 + 1/R1) = Vparallel. Where I1 = V/R0. Then, I2 = Vparallel/R1 But, that's not correct unfortunately. Where am I going wrong? Thanks! Side note, here are the eqns I got from kirchoff's laws (pretty sure I messed something up): V - I1R0 - I2R1 = 0 Left loop -I4R4 + I2R1 = 0 Right loop at t=0 (or basically zero) Also, I4=I3. V-I1R0-I4R2 = 0 Entire loop again at t=0.
