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

If the current in a wire is given by the following functions of time, what charge passes

a given point from t=0 to t=10 seconds? (i is in Amps and t in seconds). Show units

for charge.

i(t) = 4t + 5

2. Relevant equations

Nothing really

3. The attempt at a solution

0 seconds: 5A

10 seconds: 4x10 + 5 = 45A

Therefore 50C have passed through the wire in total.

But the answer at the back for my question says 250C, I don't get it.
