## Homework Statement

I am given the current flowing through a 2 micro-farad capacitor in the form of a graph, and I need to create a voltage graph from this.

## Homework Equations

I = C dv/dt

Q = VC

## The Attempt at a Solution

The current graph is basic with a constant 4 mA from 0 to 4 microseconds and then -1 mA from 4 to 7 microseconds. I am a bit confused on how to proceed. Is the right way to go finding the total charge at each time interval, and then plugging into the Q = VC formula to find the voltage? So then the total charge would be the area under the current vs time graph? With this I am getting a voltage graph that has a constant positive slope until 4 microseconds, and then a smaller negative slope for the next 3 microseconds, Does this sound about right? Thanks for any help
