Passive Circuit Elements

  1. May 11, 2013 #1
    The three circuit elements are capacitors, resistors, and inductors, which act in the following manner:

    Capacitor: V = (1/C) q
    Resistor: V = R dq/dt
    Inductor: V = L d2q/dt2

    Is it possible to build a passive device that acts like:

    V = (const.) d3q/dt3

    Google search has come up with nothing.

    What do you mean am I sure? Does that formula look incorrect to you or something?

    oops my bad. I didn't notice you had q instead of I.
