Cant find a problem on ToughSTEM?

At=0 the switch is closed. What is time constant. Find Qmax after the closing of the switch and find the current in the resistor after 10 seconds

As at t=0 switch is open so initially capacitor is uncharged.So,we use equation of charging of capacitor in an RC Circuit which is:

Q(t)=Q_0[1-e^{t/T}]

here Q_0 =CE where c is the capacitance=6 \mu f and e=battery potential =24 v (according to given question)

and T=time constant =RC i.e. product of resistance and capacitance = 54micro seconds (according to given question)

so maximum charge=Q_0=144 micro coulomb.

current in the circuit after t seconds is given by following equation

I(t) = (Q_o/RC) e^{-t/T}

=2.66*e^(-10/.000054)=0A as the capacitor is fully charged.
