    Hi,
    I am learning Filter circuit and there is problem on the time to charge capacitor fully.
    As the formula:
    Vc = V(1 - e-t/RC)
    the time is only depend on RC time constant but in a website I read they said that the time is depend on 2 things:
    - time constant
    -the current throught the capacitor
    Would you tell me why it is depended on the current throught the capacitor?
    Thanks in advance
