The circuit above shows a $9 \text{ volt}$ battery with negligible internal resistance connected to two $50\text{ ohm}$ resistors in series. An uncharged $6 \text{ µF}$ capacitor is connected in parallel across one of the resistors and a switch is installed in series immediately after the battery.

What is the charge stored on the capacitor a very long time after the switch has been closed?

A

$27\ \mu \text{C}$

B

$54\ \mu \text{C}$

C

$0.0027\ \mu \text{C}$

D

$300\ \mu \text{C}$
