Homework Help: Current and voltage with inductors and capacitors

  1. Nov 20, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I am given the following circuit:
    and asked to solve for v(t) and i(t)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    If this is right, I don't know where to go from here.

    Check the signs in your R||C calculation.

    One place you can go from there is to find the current from the source, hence the current through the inductor. You could then determine the voltage across the inductor due to that current. Then you're on your own to use that knowledge to proceed further.
