I have the following question to work out:-
A defibrillator consists of a open circuit containing a capacitor of 40 F and an inductor of 0.05H. A patient has a resistance of 60 when the defibrillator is discharged through him. Find the current during discharge if the capacitor is charged initially to 5000V.
Solving the second order linear D.E. for RLC circuits from:
I got the following general solution for Q (where L = 0.05, R = 60, C = and E = 5000) -
I am confused as how to get and . I used the intial conditions of t=0 and Q=0 to get = -0.02 but I am unsure as how to get .
Also how do I get the current? Would it be also at t=0?
Any suggesstions would be greatly appreciated.
