Unformatted text preview: a 1st-order differential equation, to find the response of an RC or RL circuit following a switching action. 8. Write KVL and/or KCL equations for an R, L, C circuit and then re-arrange to form a 2 nd-order differential equation for the circuit. 9. Use the continuity condition in a 2 nd-order circuit to find either ). ( dt dv or ) ( dt di c L + + 10. Find the natural frequency and damping ratio of an RLC circuit. 11 Determine if a 2 nd-order system is underdamped, critically damped, or overdamped, and set up the appropriate form for the solution....
