Hi, i have a quick question to see if i'm on the right track (I totally suck at electrical circuits since i never took a formal course so it might seem elementary to you.. anyway):

Three LC systems in parallel with different L and C values, nothing else. closed circuit.

First step in the problem is to formulate the Lagrangian and that's where i need a check, i'll be fine with the rest.

3. The attempt at a solution

Is it correct to write for the system:

L =T+V=[itex]\frac{1}{2}[/itex][itex]\sum L_{i}\dot{q}^{2}_{i}+q^{2}_{i}/C_{i}[/itex]

With the constraint:

q[itex]_{1}[/itex]+q[itex]_{2}[/itex]+q[itex]_{3}[/itex]=0

??

It seems too simple to me and i think i should be dealing with cross-terms, so a hint would be greatly appreciated.. thanks!
