Hi, it's me again, as you may know I've always have had a very hard time with circuit analysis.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How can you possibly know which states variables are you suppoused to use in second or third order circuits?.

Let's say you have to do the following exercise:

If you want to obtain a state space model for Vg(t) and V2, what would you do?.

I would try to apply some KVL and KCL, but then what?. What variable are you supposed to solve for?. if you derive some variables you may not end up with the circuit solution for V2
