(d)

The energy stored in the capacitor

 

   This energy will be converted into heat in the resistor.

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to your problem.

The energy stored in the capacitor
= 0.5CV^2
= 0.5*4*10^-4*(400)^2
= 0.32 J
This energy will be converted into heat in the resistor.

Thanks and Regards
