A switch is closed, allowing the capacitor to discharge, and 1 . 3 μ s later the energy stored in the capacitor is onefourth its initial value. Find the inductance if the capacitance is 6 pF. Correct answer: 0 . 256849 H. Explanation: Let : t = 1 . 3 μ s = 1 . 3 × 10 − 6 s and C = 6 pF = 6 × 10 − 12 F . The capacitor charge in an oscillating LC circuit is Q ( t ) = Q max cos( ω t + φ ) , where ω = 1 √ L C . To determine the phase angle φ in the above equation, we use the initial condition that, at t = 0, the charge is maximum. Thus Q max = Q max cos φ 1 = cos φ φ = 0 rad . The energy stored in the capacitor at any given time is U ( t ) = 1 2 Q ( t ) 2 C . When the energy is onefourth its initial value, we find that U ( t ) = 1 4 U (0) 1 2 Q ( t ) 2 C = 1 4 parenleftbigg Q 2 max 2 C parenrightbigg Q ( t ) = 1 2 Q max 1 2 = cos parenleftbigg t √ L C parenrightbigg t √ L C = cos − 1 parenleftbigg 1 2 parenrightbigg = π 3 rad .

The 11 pF capacitor is initially charged by the 13 V battery when S is at position a . Then S is thrown to position b so that the capacitor is shorted across the 1 . 5 mH inductor. 1 . 5 mH 11 pF 13 V S b a Find the frequency of the oscillations. Correct answer: 1 . 23902 × 10 6 Hz.
