 P: 19 Please help me to solve this RLC circuit problem. I am completely confused.If you give me the direct answer it would be much appreciated. For the series RLC circuit in Figure, find the input/output difference equation for 1.$$y(t)=v_{R}$$ 2.$$Y(t)=i(t)$$ 3.$$y(t)=v_{L}$$ 4.$$y(t)=v_{C}$$ I have attached the Circuit diagram in a .jpg file.

 P: 19 Hey first I tried taking the KVL around the loop something like $$-x(t) + v_c(t) + v_L (t) + v_R (t) = 0$$----(1) replaced v_L(t) with first order Ldi_L(t)/dt and make an equation for $$v_C(t)$$ and then as its in series I tried to write a function for $$i_L(t) = \frac {v_R (t)} R$$------(2) and for [ tex ] v_R(t)/R=C \frac {dv_c(t)} {dt} [/tex]----(3) Then tried sub (3) in (1) and got $$v_C(t) = x(t) - \frac {L} {R} dv_R(t)/dt - v + R(t)$$----(4) and then tried sub it i eqn 3. and didnt come up with a satisfactory result. Please help. Thanks

In series circuits you should always use $$v_C$$ as the independent variable (and $$i_L$$ in parallel circuits).
Since the current is the same for all elements, write $$v_L$$ and $$v_R$$ as functions of the current. Finally write the current as a function of $$v_C$$.
 P: n/a In the second equation don't use the integral term. Keep it as $$V_C(t)$$. In the two other terms replace i by $$C\frac{dV_C}{dt}$$. You get a second order equation in $$V_C$$
