Unformatted text preview: terry (ect328) homework 16 Turner (59130) 1 This printout should have 10 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 0 . 03 F capacitor is given a charge Q . After 9 s, the capacitors charge is 0 . 5 Q . What is the effective resistance across this capacitor? Correct answer: 432 . 809 M. Explanation: Let : C = 0 . 03 F = 3 10 8 F and t = 9 s . The charge on the capacitor is Q ( t ) = Q e t/ . e t/ = Q Q t = ln Q Q = t ln Q Q . The effective resistance is R = C = t C ln Q Q = 9 s (3 10 8 F) ln Q . 5 Q 1 M 10 6 = 432 . 809 M . 002 10.0 points The switch S has been in the position a for a long time. Then at t = 0, it is moved from a to b. C R 1 R 2 E S b a Find the time when the charge in the ca pacitor is reduced to 1 e of its value at t = 0. 1. = R 1 C 2. = 2 ( R 1 + R 2 ) C 3. = 1 ( R 1 + R 2 ) C 4. = 1 R 1 C 5. = 1 R 2 C 6. = ( R 1 + R 2 ) C correct 7. = R 1 + R 2 2 C 8. = R 2 C 9. = 1 R 1 R 2 C 10. = R 1 R 2 C Explanation: In charging an R C circuit, the characteris tic time constant is given by = R C , where in this problem R is the equivalent resistance, or R = R 1 + R 2 ....
