Transient currentA 20-micro F capacitor is discharged through a 5 -K Ohm resistor. The initial charge on the capacitor is 200 micro C. Sketch a graph of the current through the resistor as a function of time. Label both axes with numbers and units. What is the initial power dissipated in the resistor? What is the total energy dissipated?
