For the series R LC circuit in Example 2.2 with t he i nput I (t) = l Oe- 3t u(t)

N atural and Forced Response For the R LC circuit in Example 2.2, the characteristic modes were found to
be e - t a nd e - 2t . As we expected, t he zero-input response is composed exclusively
of characteristic modes. Note, however, t hat even the zero-state response [Eq.
(2.51a)] contains characteristic mode terms. This observation is generally true of
LTI systems. We can now lump together all t he characteristic mode terms in t he
t otal response, giving us a component known as the n atural r esponse Yn(t). T he
remainder, consisting entirely of noncharacteristic mode terms, is known as the
f orced r esponse y</>(t). T he t otal response of the R LC circuit in Example 2.2 can
be expressed in terms of natural and forced components by regrouping the terms in
Eq. (2.51a) as
