Unformatted text preview: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY EECS Department Page 1 of 6 EECS 40/42/100, Spring 2007 Prof. Chang-Hasnain Homework #5 Due at 6 pm in 240 Cory on Wednesday, 2/28/07 Total Points: 100 Put (1) your name and (2) discussion section number on your homework. You need to put down all the derivation steps to obtain full credits of the problems. Numerical answers alone will at best receive low percentage partial credits. No late submission will be accepted expect those with prior approval from Prof. Chang-Hasnain. 1. Consider the following circuit: [11 points] The switch in the circuit shown has been in position a for a long time, At t = 0 the switch is moved to position b. Calculate: (a) The initial voltage on the capacitor Just prior to the switch flipping at time t=0, the circuit is in steady-state, so the capacitor acts like an open circuit. Thus the voltage across the capacitor is given by a voltage divider: V V k k k v c 80 ) 120 ( 8 4 8 ) ( = + = ! Because capacitor voltage is continuous: V v v c c 80 ) ( ) ( = ! = + [2 points] (b) The final voltage on the capacitor Again, the circuit has reached steady state, so the capacitor acts like an open circuit. Thus all the current goes through the 40k resistor.

Solving the differential equation we get v c ( t ) = K 1 + K 2 exp{ " t /1 ms } V K V K V v V K v c c 140 80 60 ) ( 60 ) ( 2 2 1 = ! = + " = + " = = # [2 points] v c ( t ) = " 60 V + 140 V exp{ " t /1 ms } So to find the time it takes to reach zero, we set this equal to zero and solve for t. = " 60 V + 140 V exp{ " t /1 ms } # t = 1 ms $ ln(7/3) = 0.8473 ms [2 points] 2.
