Time to 'half-max' can be found from the graph as:
t1/2 = 10.14 to 9.99 = 0.2600 s (from the graph)
a. Use the graph to determine the time to 'half-max'.
b. Calculate the capacitance (C) of the capacitor.
c. Determine the percent error between the calculated capacitance and the value on the capacitor
