Study of this chapter will enable you to:
- Solve first-order RC or RL circuits.
- Understand the concepts of transient response and steady-state response.
- Relate the transient response of first-order circuits to the time constant.
- Solve RLC circuits in dc steady-state conditions.
- Solve second-order circuits.
- Relate the step response of a second-order system to its natural frequency and damping ratio.
