The capacitor in the figure (see attachment) is initially uncharged. The switch is closed at t=0.

1.) Immediately after the switch is closed, what is the current through the resistors R1, R2, and R3?

2.) What is the final charge on the capacitor?

Please refer to the attachment.

1. As soon as the battery is introduced in the circuit (t=0), the capacitor behaves like a short circuit and charging current flows through it. As the charge builds up on the capacitor gradually, the charging current goes on reducing, finally reaching zero magnitude when the capacitor is fully ...
