15.2 V |

6.70 V |

12.0 V |

1.39 V |

Answer #1

The charging of a capacitor connected to a series RC circuit depends on the time constant () of the RC circuit.

where,

Hence the charging equation for a capacitor connected in a circuit is given by,

where,

V0 = Supply Voltage = 6.7V

t = 21ms = 0.021s

R = 30k = 30x103

C = 3F = 3x10-6 F

= **1.39 V (Ans.)**
