(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A circuit contains an inductance of 40 henrys, a capacitance of .005 farads and a resistance of 240 ohms and is driven by a constant voltage of 60 volts. Given that the initial charge in the system is 5000 Coulombs and the initial current is zero amperes, discuss the subsequent behavior of the current in the circuit.

So

R = 240

L = 40 H

E = 60 V

Q = 5,000 Coulombs

C = .005 F

I = 0 amperes

I am really not sure how to begin this problem. I can't tell if I am supposed to be coming up with an equation or just talking about the behavior? If I am supposed to find an equation, where does this come from? Most of the equations I have involve only two or three variables (Such as L dI/dt + RI = E). Am I able to write an equation and then graph it?
