Homework Help: Circuit Analysis

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    analytically derive the transient expressions for the following
    1. the output voltage vot for t > 0
    2. the power absorbed by each resistor and capacitor

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not sure where to start. Don't i need to know what vi(t) is?

    I am new to circuit anaylsis too, but I am pretty sure you do, perhaps someone with more experience might advised other way.
    Was no equation given being that both voltages are functions of time, t?

    The only thing I can think of is that voltage can also be found by

    [itex]V = IR[/itex]
    V(Voltage) = I(Current) x R(Resistance)

    Write the KCL equation for that upper right node -- it will give you a differential equation to solve.
