Analytical Solution to the Problem of Charging a Capacitor Through a Lamp
An analytical solution is presented for the problem of charging a capacitor through a lamp, by assuming a polynomial relationship between the resistance of the lamp and the current flowing through it. The total energy dissipated in the lamp is also easily calculated thereby. An example of an available practical case is used to illustrate the theory.
