hello there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i'm wondering how to go about solving this problem

A diagram of the circuit can be seen here

http://www.compsoc.nuigalway.ie/~filter/images/circuit.gif [Broken]

(i threw it together in microcap) the pulse sourse is actually

meant to be a 2Amp current source. the capacitor

has a value of 1micro-Farad.

By using superposition i have to find the steady state DC

current flowing in the 20 Ohm resistor. i could usually do

this easy but the capacitor is throwing me off. im assuming

that once a steady state has been reached, the capacitor

will be fully charged and no current will actually be flowing

into it right? if this is the case.. i decided that i could ignore

its effects.. because it should really have any. and this

appears to work. i dont know if its a fluke or not though.

the answers are 0.4A flows in the 20 Ohm resistor due to

the current source and 0.1A flows in the 20 Ohm resistor

due to the voltage source.

any ideas on how to go about this would be welcome.

i need my mind to be put at rest :-) cheers, Nik
