The switch in the circuit above has been in position *A* for a long time. Assume the switch moves instantaneously
from *A* to *B* at t=0.

Enter an expression for dv/dt in terms v, V0, R1, R2, and C.

dv/dt =

Enter an expression for v for t>0.

The graph above shows the voltage, v, over time given that R1=5k\Omega, R2=2k\Omega, V0 = 40V and C=10 \mu F. Please use the graph and the equations you derived above in order to calculate the following values.

V(t=0) = | |

V(t->\infty) = | |

t_c = |
