Unformatted text preview: as are the capacitors. In each circuit, the capacitor is to be charged by connecting the ends of the circuit to a 12 V battery. We start charging the capacitors at the same time. (a) In which circuit will the charge on the capacitor first reach 50% of its final value? (b) Is the final charge on the capacitor the same or different in the two circuits? Activity 2: The figure shows three circuits, each with two resistors and a capactor. The resistors are all identical, as are the capacitors. In each circuit, the capacitor is to be charged by connecting the ends of the circuit to a 12 V battery. We start charging the capacitors at the same time. (a) In which circuit will the charge on the capacitor first reach 50% of its final value?
