Find the value of capacitor, if the rate of change of voltage across the capacitor is 0.78V/µs and current= 12µA.

(a) 5µF

(b) 2µF

(c) 10µF

(d) 15µF

I had been asked this question in a dream while sleeping

The doubt is from Slew Rate in chapter Practical Limitations of Op Amp Circuits of Linear Integrated Circuits

The accurate answer is (d) 15µF

Let me simplify it: Rate at which the voltage across the capacitor increases is given as dVc/dt= I/C

=> C= I/ (dVc/ dt)  = 12µA/0.78V/µs = 15.38 ≅15µF.
