# Consider a series circuit containing a resistor of resistance R and a capacitor of capacitance C connected to a source of EMF ε with negligible internal resistance.

Consider a series circuit containing a resistor of resistance R and a capacitor of capacitance C connected to a source of EMF ε with negligible internal resistance. The wires are also assumed to have zero resistance. Initially, the switch is open and the capacitor discharged. (Figure 1)

Immediately after the switch is closed, what is the voltage across the resistor?

Immediately after the switch is closed, what is the direction of the current in the circuit?

Immediately when the switch is closed, the capacitor behaves like a short or you can say a switch with zero resistance so all the voltage drop is across resistance. So voltage across resistor is epsilon e

2. Clockwise.
