Answer:The time constant is

Explanation:From the question we are told that

the time take to charge is

The mathematically representation for voltage potential of a capacitor at different time is

Where is the time constant

is the potential of the capacitor when it is full

So the capacitor potential will be 100% when it is full thus 100% = 1

and from the question we are told that the at the given time the potential of the capacitor is 85% = 0.85 of its final potential so

V = 0.85

Hence
