Abstract

Resource Image We introduce the basics of RLC circuits, defining the terms of inductance, resistance, and capacitance in a circuit in which an induced voltage created a current running through these devices.

Description

Differential equations prove exceptional at modeling electrical circuit. In fact the very simple circuit, which is fundamental to larger circuit building, and three of the most fundamental electrical object, a resistor, a capacitor, and inductor, can be modeled by just what we are doing at present, namely a constant coefficient, linear, second order differential equation.

We build a differential equation using Kirchhoff's Law and solve and interpret our solutions.
