I'm trying to understand something.

current in a capactior is given by: i= C dV/dt

if you take the deriv. of d/dt you get: i= C * (V / 1)
is this correct?

So if I have a 1mF capactior and 100 volts DC, then my instantanous current should be: 0.1A

Plugging this into MultiSim does not give me that value.

Can someone explain this to me?

Thanks in advance!
