    Newtons third law of motion

    Homework Statement A particle of mass 4kg is being towed at a constant speed up a rough plane inclined at 30 degrees to the horizontal by a force 4g N acting parallel to the slope. At the top of the slope the particle moves onto a rough horizontal slope with the same coefficient of friction...

    A doubt about RC circuits

    In an RC circuit shown below, with the switch closed after a long time, when the capacitor is charging, there is a current across the capacitor given by Initial current x e ^ (-t/RC)... Is this current....the current supplied by capacitor to the rest of circuit, or simply the current across...

    Engineering Solving an RC circuit question using Superposition

    Hello, The circuit attached below is from Richard Dorfs Intro to Electric Circuits book. The switch is shut for a long time and opened at t=0. The question asks to find the i(t) across R11, which they use nodal analaysis and find it to be 66.67 - 16.666 e^{-t/120} micro Amps, where 66.67 micro...

    Two Parallel Voltage sources and KVL

    Hi, I understand that you cannot apply KVL to voltage sources connected in parallel, unless both voltage sources are the same, as this violates KVL. However, I want to know why? Just a simple 2-3 line explanation will suffice. Regards
