THE LAPLACE TRANSFORM METHOD

[CHAP. 16

In the series RC circuit of Fig. 16-5, the capacitor has an initial charge 2.5 mC. At t ¼ 0, the switch is closed and a constant-voltage source V ¼ 100 V is applied. Use the Laplace transform method to ﬁnd the current. The time-domain equation for the given circuit after the switch is closed is   ðt 1 RiðtÞ þ Q0 þ iðÞ d ¼ V C 0 or

Q0 is opposite in polarity to the charge which the source will deposit on the capacitor. Taking the Laplace transform of the terms in (6), we obtain the s-domain equation 10IðsÞ 

In the RL circuit shown in Fig. 16-6, the switch is in position 1 long enough to establish steadystate conditions, and at t ¼ 0 it is switched to position 2. Find the resulting current. Assume the direction of the current as shown in the diagram. i0 ¼ 50=25 ¼ 2 A. The time-domain equation is 25i þ 0:01

The initial current is then
