27. The assumption stated at the end of the problem is equivalent to setting φ = 0 in Eq. 33-25. Since the maximum energy in the capacitor (each cycle) is given by q 2 max / 2 C ,where q max is the maximum charge (during a given cycle), then we seek the time for which q 2 max 2 C = 1 2 Q 2 2 C = ⇒ q max = Q √ 2 . Now q max (referred to as the exponentially decaying amplitude in § 33-5) is related to Q (and the other
