Steady Charge on Capacitor

APPH12-53XFOB

The circuit above shows a 9-volt battery with negligible internal resistance connected to two 50-ohm resistors in series. An uncharged 6-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

$27\mu C$

B

$54\mu C$

C

$0.0027\mu C$

D

$300\mu C$
