# Transient Response

 This module introduces the complete response of inductors and capacitors to a state change within a circuit. The non-linear elements are exposed to constant and exponential sources. The module explains transient/forced response, steady state or natural response, and describes a method for obtaining the responses. Brief explanations are provided for solving separable differential equations obtained from the non-linear elements. An interactive plot of the complete response is provided, as well as MapleSim and analytical examples. Keywords & Topics: Transient, complete, forced, natural, response, time constant, first order, non-linear, electric circuits, steady state, state change, switches, Norton, Thevenin, equivalent, constant, exponential Main Topic: Electric Circuits
