    Answer:

    540C.

    Explanation:

    A capacitor of capacitance C when charged to a voltage of V will have a charge Q given as follows;

    Q = CV          ———-(i)

    From the question, the initial charge on the capacitor is the charge on it before it was connected to the resistor. In other words, the initial charge on the capacitor will have a maximum value which can be calculated using equation (i) above.

    Where;

    C = 6F

    V = 90V

    Substitute these values into equation (i) as follows;

    Q = 6 x 90

    Q = 540 C

    Therefore, the initial charge on the capacitor is 540C.
