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

A capacitor with a capacitance of C = 28.7 μF is slowly charged by a constant current of I = 63.2 nA. How long does it take to charge the capacitor to a voltage of V = 28.9 V?

2. Relevant equations

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

Vb=IR+QC

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried to solve for R by R=I/V but I don't know how to solve for t because Q is not given, and I don't know how to find it. Any ideas? I only got a couple hours left. Any help is greatly appreciated.
