The e-folding time or time constant of a simple RC (resistor-capacitor) circuit is given by: a) = C/R . b) = 1 / ( RC ). c) = R/C . d) = RC . e) = R 2 /C . 028 qmult 10300 3 3 2 tough thinking: infinite ladder resistor mult 14. Consider an infinite ladder resistor. There are two terminals A and B at the left: A is the upper terminal; B is the lower terminal. From each terminal, a wire extends to infinity in the rightward direction. There are vertical wires at equal intervals connecting the A wire and the B wire: these are the rungs of the ladder. On each vertical wire (each rung) is a resistor of resistance R . On the A wire before each node (going rightward) is also a resistor of resistance R . Draw a diagram....
