# Use second order differential equation to solve RCL series circuit?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 06/02/2009

we use charge stored in the capacitor as our variable (remember it one of the three variable). so the potential difference across the capacitor is --charge stored in the capacitor at that instance/capacitance of the capacitor. potential difference across resistor is --resistance* differential of charge with respect to time. potential difference across inductor is -- inductance*double difference of charge with respect to the time. If there is no voltage source attached with the network then sum of the total potential difference is equal to zero hence your solution.........L*d^2(q)/dt^2 + R*d(q)/dt + q/c =0

### Why are there discrepancies in measurements between a series and parallel circuit when checking resistance and current of both?

Current in each branch of a parallel circuit is always less than
that of a comparable series circuit; this is because the current
flow is divided through the branches, and each receives less
according to its resistance. Resistance in each branch will be the
same as if it was a series circuit, but the total resistance of the
circuit will be lowered according to the equation 1/Rtotal = 1/R1 +
1/R2 + ..
