Name of Student _____________________________________


1.       Redraw the following schematics with the impedance of each of the element shown in Laplace domain. Then determine the overall impedance of the entire circuit between the two ends of the shown circuit and express it in Laplace domain as a ratio of two polynomials in s, with the coefficients of the highest power if s in the numerator and denominator are made unity. (Follow the method outlined in the lecture to determine the impedances of elements in Laplace domain and then use the formulas for combining impedances in series and parallel.)










2.        (a) Apply Laplace transform to the following differential equation and express it as an algebraic equation in s.



(b) Given that all initial conditions are zero, (, solve for  as a function of time by inverting x(s) using Laplace transform pair tables. Show the steps you took in finding the answer.


Hint: Make use of the following Laplace transform pairs in this and following problems.



(c) Now solve the differential equation using the “Dsolve” command of MATLAB as explained in the lecture for Week 2. Paste your MATLAB commands and answers obtained below and prove that the two answers (one obtained by inverting using Laplace tables in part (b) and the answer provided by MATLAB) agree by solving for value of x(t) at t = infinity and t = 0 seconds in both cases. This shows that the same expression can be represented in more than one form. Trigonometric identities can be used to show that the two expressions are the same, though you are not required to do that as part of the homework.


3.       An RC circuit with an initial condition is shown below. The toggle switch is closed at t = 0. Assuming that a current i(t) flows clockwise in the circuit, Write the integral equation that governs the behavior of the circuit current and solve it for the current in the circuit i(t) and voltage across the capacitor as a function of time using Laplace transforms. Note the polarity of the initial condition as marked in the figure. (Take help from the document “Solving RC, RLC, and RL Circuits Using Laplace Transforms” (located in Doc Sharing) and the Week 2 Lecture to see how initial conditions are entered in Laplace domain.)



4.       The voltage in a circuit, expressed in Laplace domain, is given by the questions below.


a.       V(s) =  Find v(t) by first performing a partial fraction expansion and then inverting back to time domain using Laplace tables.






b.      Determine the numerical value of v(t) at t = 1 second.



c.       The voltage in a circuit, expressed in Laplace domain, is given by

V(s) =  . Find v(t) using Laplace tables.



d.      Determine the numerical value of v(t) at t = 1 second.


5.       An RLC circuit is shown below. There is an initial voltage of 5 V on the capacitor, with polarity as marked in the circuit. The switch is closed at t = 0 and a current i(t) is assumed to flow clockwise. Write the integral-differential equation of this circuit using Kirchoff’s method (sum of all voltages around a loop is zero). Apply Laplace transform as outlined in the lecture for Week 2 and in the document “Solving RC, RLC, and RL Circuits Using Laplace Transforms” (located in Doc Sharing) and write i(s) in Laplace transform notation. Express the denominator with the coefficient of the highest power of s unity. Then invert to obtain the current in time domain, i(t).
