Voltage and charge capacity

If I have a capacitor with a capacitance of 0.000005 farads is wired in a circuit with a total resistance of 5000 ohms, how long must the capacitor be wired to a source voltage to reach 50% of its maximum charge? With q = Q [ 1 - e ( - t / RC ) ]. To help me understand this better, please show all work.

Quadratic Reciprocity Law

Prove, using the quadratic reciprocity law that (3/p) = 1 if p== 1 or 11 (mod 12) (3/p) = -1 if p==5 or 7 (mod12) for each odd prime p.

Standard Deviation and Mean : Appication Word Problem - Phony Data?

For any data set of n values with standard deviation s, every value must be within s √n - 1 of the mean. A statistics teacher reports that the test scores in her class of 17 students had a mean of 75.0 and a standard deviation of 5.0.

Minimum Cost Problem

Minimum cost problem: It cost a company C dollars per hour to operate its base base division. an analyst had determined that C is related to the number of base balls produced per hour, x, by the eqauation C = 0.009x^2 - 1.8^2 + 100. What number of balls per hour should be produced to minimize the cost per hour of manufacturing

Displacement Equation

In science, we calculate the displacement of an object (how far it travels) and the velocity of an object (how fast it is moving) using the Displacement Equation and the Velocity Equation: {see attachment} Where is the displacement of the object, measured in meters t is the amount of time that we analyze the movement of t
