+ - i Consider the circuit shown in the figure. We assume that the capacitor is initially uncharged and that at 0 we throw the switch S from the middle position to posi t RC circuits : Charging of a capacitor tion a. The battery will charge the capacitor through the resistor . C R Our objective is to examine the charging process as function of time. We will write KLR starting at point b and going in the the counterclockwise direction. 0 The current q dq dq q iR i R C dt dt C If we rearrange the terms we have: This is an inhomogeneous, first order, linear differential equation with initial condition: (0) 0. This condition expresses the fact that a t dq q R dt C q t 0 the capacitor is uncharged. (27 15)

If we plot versus we see t t dq q R dt C q q C e RC qt hat does not reach its terminal value but instead increases from its initial value and it reaches the terminal value at .
