Unformatted text preview: a. At t=t the switch is flipped to position 1. Calculate the potential difference U C across the capacitor plates and U R across the ohmic resistor as well as the current I as function of time. b. At t=t 1 ( U C (t1) = U ) the switch is flipped into position 2. Calculate U C , U R and I as function of time. 3. A serial circuit consists of a capacitor, a resistor and a switch. a. The capacitor is made from two flat square metal plates of length L on a side and separated by a distance d . What is the capacitance ? b. Show that if any electrical energy is stored in the capacitor, it is entirely dissipated in the resistor after the switch is closed....
