First order RC circuit

The switch opens at t=0. Find an expression for V(t) and sketch to scale versus time.

See attached.


Solution Preview

At t = 0, v(t) =0 and since capacitor voltage cannot change instantaneously, the current 1 mA goes all thro' ...

Solution Summary

A first order RC circuit is analyzed in the solution. A calculate for V(t) as t=0 is calculated. A graph of scale versus time is included.
