Hi, I've come across this equation in my research, and I am so far unable to solve it.

The equation is:

[tex]\frac{dV}{dt} + \frac{1}{RC}V - \frac{I}{C}e^{(-V/n)} = \frac{V_f}{RC} - \frac{I}{C}[/tex]

both terms on the right-hand-side are constants; throughout the equation R, C, I, n, and V

I can solve the equation without the [tex]\frac{I}{C}e^{(-V/n)}[/tex] but I just have no idea how to do it with the exponential term.

Thanks for any help.

_{f}are constants. I want to solve for V. The equation is derived from a pretty simple resistor, capacitor, diode circuit, which I can describe if anyone thinks that will help.I can solve the equation without the [tex]\frac{I}{C}e^{(-V/n)}[/tex] but I just have no idea how to do it with the exponential term.
