Name ___________________________________ Student ID ____________ Score_______ last first II. RC Circuit. A 44 μ F capacitor is connected to a 12 V battery, switch and four 80 Ω resistors. At the time illustrated in the diagram, the switch is open, but the capacitor has a charge Q equal to 50% of the maximum value that can be obtained with the switch X Y closed (in the correct position) for a long time. 4. (4 pts) This circuit can be used to fully charge or discharge the capacitor by placing the switch in the correct position. In which case is the time constant larger? A. The time constant is larger for discharging the capacitor. B. The time constant is larger for charging the capacitor. C. The time constant has the same non-zero value for both charging and discharging. D. The time constant is zero for both charging and discharging. E. More information is needed in order to compare values. 5. (4 pts) Which value best represents the time constant with the switch in position Y? 0 . 0 s 4 . 8 x 10 -3 s 8 . 8 x 10 -3 s 1 . 2 x 10 -2 s 1 . 6 x 10 -2 s A B C D E 6. (4 pts) Assume that the switch remains in position Y for a long time. Which choice best represents the final magnitude of potential difference across the capacitor? Zero V 4 . 5 V 4 . 9 V 6 . 0 V 12 V A B C D E Physics 115A, Winter 08, Version B Exam 2, page 2
