Tutorial on First Order Systems - Part 1


In this tutorial, you will use what you have learned about first order systems to solve three problems, each one progressively more complex than the last, and building on the results of the last. Consider the circuit below.

Assume that the capacitor is initially uncharged. The switch is closed at t = 0.

Find v(0-). This is the voltage on the capacitor the instant before the switch is closed.

v(0-) = V
