###### FREE Expert Solution

The current while the capacitor charges is given by

$\overline{){\mathbit{I}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{b}}}{\mathbf{R}}{{\mathbf{e}}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{t}\mathbf{/}\mathbf{RC}\mathbf{\right)}}}$

Vb is the battery voltage.

The current while the capacitor discharges is given by

$\overline{){\mathbf{I}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{0}}}{\mathbf{R}}{{\mathbf{e}}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{t}\mathbf{/}\mathbf{RC}\mathbf{\right)}}}$
