circuit, with a DC voltage source. I have not yet studied AC analysis.

The circuit looks like this:

_________

| | |

V R C

| | |

|____|____|

V is really V*u(t), so the voltage is turned on at t=0.

I want to calculate Vc and Vr. On one hand, Vc and Vr should be the

same, as they are in parallel. On the other hand, Vc cannot jump

to voltage V instantaneously. I have not been able to set up the

differential equation to get a solution with any time-varying

behavior at the capacitor.

Thanks for any help, especially with setting up the equation to get

this right.
