# Consider the Situation Shown in Figure. the Switch is Closed at T = 0 When the Capacitors Are Uncharged. Find the Charge on the Capacitor C1 As a Function of Time T. - Physics

Sum

Consider the situation shown in figure. The switch is closed at t = 0 when the capacitors are uncharged. Find the charge on the capacitor C1 as a function of time t.

#### Solution

The two capacitors are connected in series. Their equivalent capacitance,

$C_{eqv} = \frac{C_1 C_2}{C_1 + C_2}$

The growth of charge in the capacitors,

$q = C_{eqv} \epsilon\left( 1 - e^{- \frac{1}{r C_{eqv}}} \right)$
