Question
(a) Calculate the capacitance needed to get an $RC$ time constant of $1.00 \times 10^3 \textrm{ s}$ with a $0.100 \Omega$ resistor. (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) Which assumptions are responsible?
1. $10.0 \textrm{ kF}$
2. Such a large capacitor would be unrealistically large.
3. It isn't reasonable to expect such a large time constant with such a small resistor.
