62. (a) The potential difference V across the plates of a capacitor is related to the charge q on the positive plate by V = q / C , where C is capacitance. Since the charge on a discharging capacitor is given by q = q 0 e –t / τ , this means V = V 0 e –t / where V 0 is the initial potential difference. We solve for the time constant
