Note that the circuit does not know that the pulse will end: its response, according to the equation above, is exactly as it would be for a switch closed forever or an infinitely long pulse. When the pulse ends, the capacitor is gradually discharging. Remember the continuity demand! In the circuit above, the discharge has the same time constant: recall that a voltage source of zero voltage (at time t > t ) acts as a short circuit. The Assignment Part 1 (10 points) Given R = 240 , determine the range of capacitances such that the capacitor voltage V C reaches at least 3.5 V within the pulse duration of 200 ps (1 picosecond = 1012 sec). This duration of a clock pulse corresponds to the frequency of 2.5 GHz, typical of todays computers. Your result: _________________________________________ Part 2 (10 points) Given C = 3.5 pF, determine the range of resistances such that the capacitor voltage V C reaches at least 3.5 V within the pulse duration of 200 ps.

On the circuit diagram (repeated here for your convenience) show the reference marks for the resistor voltage. On the grids below, assume that the tick marks indicate the beginning and the end of the pulse. Calculate the maximal value of the capacitor voltage, and of the resistor voltage.
