This being a homework forum, try showing some effort on your side. You need to find out what that exponential equation is and then solve it.

it is not a homework problem i dont know anything about it.so tell me what is it so i can study about it and be prepared for the finals.i searched exponential equation but no luck

It doesn't matter whether it is an actual, explicit homework problem. In this forum YOU are expected to at least make an honest attempt to solve the problem. We will not spoon feed you solutions just because you claim that it is not an assigned problem.

If you really have absolutely no idea what an exponential equation is or what a time constant is or how they relate to each other, then you need to drop this class and retake the prerequisite course(s).

ok ill tell you what i know so far we get exponential decay when capacitor or inductor is discharging e^-t/tao in this question they have given us the decay of 70.7 percent when t=0 and we have to find it when its in t=5 second so do can i do this when e^-0tao=70.7 and now e^-5/tao
thats i know so far .

Read... the... question....

(Find the time constant) (of an exponential function) (which decays to 70.7% (of its initial value at t = 0) in 5 msec).
