PHYS345 Electricity and Electronics

Hint for 5-7

When working on RC transient circuits (or LR for that matter), I recommend finding the Thévenin generator to which the capacitance is connected. Remember that in general the generator may change according to the switch setting.

In this circuit the Thévenin generator is 2.7 k and 8.7 V when the switch is closed.
