Unformatted text preview: 96. We write (as functions of time) VL (t) = E e−t/τl . Considering the first two data points, (VL1 , t1 ) and (VL2 , t2 ), satisfying VLi = E e−ti /τL (i = 1, 2), we have VL1 /VL2 = E e−(t1 −t2 )/τL , which gives τL = t1 − t2 1.0 ms − 2.0 ms = = 3.6 ms . ln(V2 /V1 ) ln(13.8/18.2) Therefore, E = VL1 et1 /τL = (18.2 V)e1.0 ms/3.6 ms = 24 V. One can easily check that the values of τL and E are consistent with the rest of the data points. ...
