ODE's/Elec Eng'g: The circuit elements in a strictly parallel RLC circuit are R = 312.5 Ohms, L = 50 mH, and C = 200 nF. The initial inductor current is 45 mA, and the initial capacitor voltage is 15V. Find v(t) for t>=0, where t is in milliseconds. (Illustration attached in the first comment)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the problem didn't give v'(0) directly, I solved for v'(0) first by using the equation i_C(0) = C dv(0)/dt. By Kirchoff's current law, i_C(0)  i_R(0)  i_L(0) = 0. i_R(0) is just v_C(0)/R which is 15V/312.5 Ohms = 0.048 A. i_L(0) is given in the problem, which is 45 mA. Thus i_C(0) = 0.048 A  .045 A = .003 A. Thus, dv(0)/dt = i_C(0)/C = (.003 A)/(200E9 F) = 15000 V/s. Since the problem is asking for t in ms, I used v'(0) = 15 V/ms. Still, this didn't work though.
