Please see the attached file.
When the switch is in position 1 for some time, the capacitor gets fully charged when the potential across it is same as the battery voltage i.e. 5 V. As the switch changes to position 2 at t=0, the capacitor starts discharging through the 10 k ohm resistance.
Initial charge on the capacitor when fully charged = Qo = CVo â?¦.â?¦(1)
Let charge on the capacitor at any instant t be Q ...
