    Determine Vc(t) for t>0. The voltage across the capacitor in figure just before the switch is changed is given below: Vc(0) = -7V
    Io = 12mA
    C = 0.55muF
    R1 = 7kOhms
    R2 = 3.3 kOhms

    This a very tricky question.

    First remember that we deal with an ideal current source. If we have a closed loop then the current must be 12mA, no more no ...
