Hint for Ch. 28, 76P

To find the charge after the switch has been closed a long time, determine the "terminal voltage" of either of the emf+resistor branches. That is, after the capacitor is fully charged, there will still be a steady-state current in the outer loop, determined by the usual dc circuit approach.
