67 8. What would be the effect on the experiment if resistances of the order of 100 or 1 k were used? 9. By what percentage (with respect to the maximum charge on the capacitor C ) , does the capacitor charge / discharge in a time interval t = , t = 2 ( = time constant )? 10. Estimate the width of the current pulse that passes through the ballistic galvanometer when the capacitor is discharged through it .You may need to have an idea of the intrinsic resistance of the galvanometer.
