Unformatted text preview: V across the capacitor: V = − L ( di/dt ), and we interpret the fact that − di/dt > 0 in this discussion to mean that d ( dq/dt)/dt = d 2 q/dt 2 < 0 represents a “deceleration” of the chargebuildup process on the capacitor (since it is approaching its maximum value of charge). In this way we can “check” the signs in Eq. 3111 (which states q/C = − L d 2 q/dt 2 ) to make sure we have implemented the loop rule correctly....
