a) Describe the behavior of the circuit when the switch S is closed in each position.

 b) Suppose the switch is flipped from one position to the other at regular time intervals. Sketch the voltage across the R–C combination as a function of time. What type of variable voltage supply is effectively connected to the R-C combination?

 c) Suppose that one wishes to measure the voltage across the capacitor. How would one connect a voltmeter up to the RC circuit shown in the figure? 

d) Sketch the voltage across the capacitor for the case when the switch is flipped very slowly, and for the case where it is flipped very quickly

 What defines “slow” and “fast” in this system?
