Time Constant for an RLC circuit

  1. Dec 2, 2009 #1
    Can anyone please tell me what the Time Constant of an RLC (Resistor, Inductor, Capacitor) circuit is?

    Nope, sorry. We don't give out answers to schoolwork questions here on the PF.

    What can you tell us about RLC circuits? Is it a parallel or series RLC circuit? Would the time constants be different for parallel versus series?

    How would you go about deriving the current and voltage behavior or an RLC circuit?
