A capacitor's rate of charge is considered:

 [A]. magnetic [B]. a current block [C]. linear [D]. exponential

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Him said: (Sep 23, 2011) As charging of capictor graph is exponential.

 Sujatha said: (Oct 13, 2012) When capacitor charging current increases exponentially and also when capacitor discharging current decreases exponentially.

 Aswathi Ms said: (Feb 2, 2014) Since vc=vin(1-e^-(t/rc)), Capacitors rate of charge is considered exponential.

 Bilal Ahmed said: (Mar 15, 2014) Why capacitor charge and discharge exponential ?

 Ravi said: (Jan 2, 2015) When a.c supply is given voltage across capacitor is IZ where i = cdv/dt where v = vmcoswt finally after derivation we got an exponential signal.

 Hemangi said: (Jul 16, 2016) During charging electrons flow from the negative terminal of the power supply to one plate of the capacitor and from the other plate to the positive terminal of the power supply.
