I've been working on this problem to review (see the attachments), and my circuit analysis skills are quite rusty. I've determined that the circuit should be underdamped, and it will have a step response. Based on this, I'm using the equation V0(t)=Vf+B1e^(αt)cos(ωdt)+B2e^(ω0t)sin(ωdt). As you can see from the third attachment, I'm not sure as to what the values of B1 and B2 should be. Vf should be 20v as I interpreted, correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, it would seem that 50mA source would loop between the resistor while the switch is open (since the inductor would effectively be a short and the capacitor would be open), and when the switch is closed, the current would pass through the switch and loop in that manner, correct?

As I stated earlier, assuming that all of my former work is correct, I'm not sure what values I should assign to B1 and B2. A push in the right direction from here would be great -- I have terrible handwriting but hopefully it is clear enough to read.
