The potential difference between point d and e in this series RC circuit at any time is: Ve e tRC t =− = −− ε 11 2 0 0 1 1000 6 . V . Therefore, the charge on each capacitor between points d and e is: + - a bc d e f S 120 V 2.00 k 3.00 k C 1 = 2.00 µ F C 2 = 3.00 µ F FIG.

Then ii c is the current in the voltmeter. The loop rule applied to the inner loop is +− − = iR q C 0. The loop rule for the outer perimeter is −−− = iR i i r c 0. With i dq dt c = , this becomes −−+ = iR ir dq dt r 0. Between the two loop equations we eliminate i R q RC by substitution to obtain εε −+ F H G I K J += + + + + ++ + = Rr R q RC dq dt r R RC q dq dt r r q C Rr dq dt 0 0 0 This is the differential equation required.
