ahh for god sake. cheers Last question today its another Electronics orientated problem, which i hate. but ive attempted In a LR circuit with applied voltage E=10(1e^0.1t) the current i is given by L di/dt + Ri =10(1e^0.1t). If the initial current is i0m derive the result : i=10/R  (100/10RL) e^0.1t + [ i0 + 10L/R(10RL) ] e^Rt/L. My working. L di/dt + Ri = 10 (1e^0.1t) di/dt + (R/L)i = 10(1e^0.1t) / L ?(x)=e^?R/L dt = e^Rt/L Multiply by integrating factor e^Rt/L di/dt + R/L e^Rt/L i = 10(1e^0.1t)/L e^Rt/L d/dt (e^Rt/L i) = 10(1e^0.1t)/L e^Rt/L ?d/dt (e^Rt/L i) dt =?10(1e^0.1t)/L e^Rt/L dt e^Rt/L i = ?1010e^0.1t/L e^Rt/L dt e^Rt/L i = 10t +100e^0.1t + L/R thats as far as i got as i was digging a deep whole i feared

You did well until you integrated the right side of the equation. You did not distribute the integrating factor. You have the IVP: , Put the linear ODE into standard form: Calculate integrating factor Now use initial conditions to determine C: Thus the solution satisfying initial conditions is:
