First thing you should do is LABEL all the Voltages and Currents in the circuit, use the following Notation: Resistor Capacitor Inductor Voltage v R t v C t v L t Current i R t i C t i L t You need to recognize Voltages and Currents that are EQUIVALENT in the circuit (Write them down): Elements in Series Same Current flow through them Elements in Parallel Same Voltage drop across them Now you can start writing your Differential Equation. STEP 1 If the response you are looking for is a Voltage, the FIRST equation you write should be a KVL equation. To avoid any confusion, use the above Notation when writing the KVL equation. Likewise, if you are looking for a Current, the First equation should be a KCL equation. STEP 2 Use Ohm's Law and Device Laws to Replace all other variables, LEAVE the Desired Response ( v R...
