R3=18.OQ, and R4=24.OQ. You are also told that the current through resistor R1 is l1=2.50A. Determine
(a) the currents that ﬂow through each of the other three resistors; (b) the emf E of the battery, which you
may assume to be ideal; and (c) the equivalent resistance of this combination of resistors as seen by the
battery. (1) What is the fundamental relationship between the V

Determine the voltage
drop across the capacitor (Vc), the voltage drop across the resistor (VR), the charge on the capacitor (q),
and the current through the resistor (I) at the following three times: (a) at the moment when S is closed to
complete the circuit (to=Os); (b) at time t1=5.0.0x10'3 s; and (c) at time t2=150x10'3 s. S
