I'm trying to figure out the power required to get the capacitor fully charged in 400 microseconds.

As far as I know, because it will be operating at resonant frequency, the energy stored will equal E_stored (1/2)*C*V^2 = (1/2)*L*I^2. I also need to take into account the resistive dissipation of energy (due to the resistance of the coil). Then I can use (delta_E / delta_t) to calculate the power I need??

This is where I'm stuck. I think I need some sort of differential equation. I don't know much about electrical circuits of this nature and online research has proved unhelpful. Any help is appreciated.
