Problem 31.13: Rank resistors in switched RLC circuits

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Assume an ideal power supply. Rank the resistors in the three switched RLC circuits (you will need to open the switches and start the graph by clicking on the "play" button). The graph shows the voltage across the capacitor as a function of time (red), the voltage across the inductor as a function of time (blue), and the voltage across the resistor as a function of time (green) (voltage is given in volts and time is given in seconds). Restart.
