Name: , DL Section: Last First Office Use Quiz 5 Physics 7B Winter 2010 Feb. 10, 2010 Consider the circuit shown above. The switch is initially open. a) When the switch is closed, the capacitor starts to charge. It will eventually (after and long time) reach a voltage of 3.0 V. How much charge is stored on the capacitor when it has charged up to 3.0 V? b) After the capacitor is fully charged, then switch is then opened again and the capacitor will
