$\displaystyle L d^2I/dt^2 + R dI/dt + 1/C I = dE/dt$

There is also a picture attached, not sure if its important so let me know.

Find I as a function of t if:

1. R=0, 1/(LC) = w^2, E= constant

2. R=0, 1/(LC) = w^2, E= Asin(alpha*t); alpha=constant≠w

3. R=0, 1/(LC) = w^2, E= Asin(wt)

4. R=50, L=5, C=9x10^-6, E= constant

If someone can just get me started, it would be much appreciated. I have utterly no clue what to do here
