A capacitor and a resistor that are in series are initially connected to a power supply with 22 volts. The power supply is then cut-off and the capacitor begins to discharge through the resistor. At t = 20 s, the voltage across the capacitor drops to 7 volts. What is the resistance of the resistor, in mega ohms (MΩ) if the capacitance, C = 7 μF ? Please give your answer in two decimal places.
