## Homework Statement

A 2.00μF capacitor with an initial charge of 5.10μC is discharged through a 1.3 kΩ resistor.

a) calculate the current through the resistor 9.00ms after the resistor is connected across the capacitor

b) what charge remains on the capacitor after 8.00ms

c) what is the maximum current in the resistor?

## Homework Equations

Discharging capacitor

I = (Io-Vo)e^-t/RC

q = Qe^-t/RC

C= Q/(Vf-Vi)

I = V/R

## The Attempt at a Solution

C= Q/(Vf-Vi)

V= 5.1/2

V=2.55V

I=V/R

I=2.55/1300

I=1.9mA

Unable to find Io and have no idea where to go from there.
