Hello everyone,
I was wondering what is the most practical/hands on engineering specialization in mechanical that would not require someone to stay in front of a computer 8h a day, 40h a week because that is what I've mostly been doing at my internships so far (CFD simulations, excel, tecplot)...

Homework Equations
For a capacitor: i=C(de/dt)
The Attempt at a Solution
Using Kirchhoff's current law at the note above the resistor R2 I get the following equation, which I believe is right:
C(e0' - ei') + (e0 - ei)/R1 + e0/R2 = 0
Then, since the source has a...
