🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Minassian's class at UCI.

Solution: Consider the RC circuit shown in the figure below where a light bulb and a capacitor, initially uncharged are connected in series to a battery with emf V through a switch S.  After the switch is closed, the behavior of the light bulb is best described by A) initially off B) stays on as long as S is closed C) initially bright and then dims down D) its brightness decays at a rate = 1/RC E) None of the above
