**1. Homework Statement**

In an L-R-C circuit, L = 1, R = 2, C = 0.25, E(t) = 50 cos(t)

Find the steady state solution

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

[tex] L \frac {di(t)}{dt} + R \frac {dq(t)}{dt} + \frac {q}{C} = 50cos(t) [/tex]

[tex] \frac {di(t)}{dt} + 2 \frac {dq(t)}{dt} + 4q = 50cos(t) [/tex]

[tex] q(t) = e^{-t}(c1cos(sqrt(12)t + c2sin(sqrt(12)t) [/tex]

next annihilate 50*cos(t)

[tex] (D^2 +1) (D^2 + 2D + 4) = (D^2 +1)50cos(t) [/tex]

[tex] roots = +/- i[/tex]

[tex] qp(t) = Acos(t) + Bsin(t)[/tex]

[tex] [-Acos(t) - Bsin(t)] - 2Asin(t) + 2Bcos(t) + 4Acos(t) + 4Bsin(t) = 50cos(t) [/tex]

[tex] cos(t)[-A+2B+4A] + sin(t)[-B-2A+4B] = 50cos(t) [/tex]

[tex] 3A+2B = 50 [/tex]

[tex] 3B-2A = 0[/tex]

[tex] A = \frac {150}{13} [/tex]

[tex] B = \frac {100}{13} [/tex]

[tex] qp(t) = \frac {150}{13}cos(t) + \frac {100}{13}sin(t) [/tex]

The book gets

[tex] qp(t) = \frac {100}{13}cos(t) - \frac {150}{13}sin(t) [/tex]

I'm off with swapped coefficients and the sign.

Do I have something crossed?

Where is my error?

Thanks
