A capacitor of capacitance C is given a charge Q. At t = 0, it is connected to an uncharged capacitor of equal capacitance through a resistance R. Find the charge on the second capacitor as a function of time t.

Sol. The capacitor is given a charge Q. It will discharge and the capacitor will be charged up when connected with battery. Net charge at time t = Qe^-t /RC + Q(1- e^-t /RC )
