Homework Help: RLC Circuits

  1. Mar 31, 2009 #1
    This is the circuit at t(0-); Initial conditions need to be determined:

    Capacitor is replaced by an open circuit and inductor is replaced with a short circuit:

    These are the initial conditions I get:

    I through inductor (0-) = 3 A

    V across capacitor ( 0-) = 0 ( in parallel w/ SC)

    Am I missing something? This is not making any sense to me.
