Hi all,

I'm reading The Art of Electronics and they have a circuit that shows an arbitrary resistor and a capacitor connected in parallel (no source
connections). They also stated that according to the capacitor rules, we
get:

C*(dV/dt) = I = - (V/R)

I can't seem to comprehend the - (minus sign) in front of (V/R). Can anyon explain this? Show it mathematically?

Thanks!
