69. (a) The charge on the positive plate of the capacitor is given by qC e t =− ε τ 1 c h , where is the emf of the battery, C is the capacitance, and is the time constant. The value of is = RC = (3.00 × 10 6 )(1.00 × 10 –6 F) = 3.00 s. At t = 1.00 s, t / = (1.00 s)/(3.00 s) = 0.333 and the rate at which the charge is increasing is () ( ) 6 0.333 7 1.00 10 F 4.00V 9.55 10 C s. 3.00s t dq C ee dt −− × == = × (b) The energy stored in the capacitor is given by 2 , 2 C q U C = and its rate of change is dU dt q C dq dt C = .
