Problem: RC Circuit Analysis After the switch has been closed a very long time, what is the voltage across the capacitor?

FREE Expert Solution

The voltage across the 10 Ω resistor and the capacitor combination is 100 V, equal to the emf provided by the voltage source. That is:

V10Ω + Vcapacitor = 100 V

After a long time, the charging current through the branch is zero as the capacitor is fully charged.
