# Problem: A 4.80-µF capacitor that is initially uncharged is connected in series with a 7.40-kΩ resistor and an emf source with ε = 100 V and negligible internal resistance.A long time after the circuit is completed (after many time constants) what are the values of the quantities:A. The voltage drop across the resistor?B. The charge on the capacitor?C. The current through the resistor?

###### FREE Expert Solution

A.

Along time after the circuit is completed:

ε = iR = (0.00)((7.4 × 103) = 0.00 V
