Transient response of second order circuit

Assume DC steady-state conditions exist for t>0. Determine the voltage across the capacitor and the current through the inductor and Rs2 as t approaches infinity.

See attachment for diagram.

I am assuming that at t=0, the switch opens (it was closed before).

As t approaches infinity, we will have a steady-state DC circuit where the inductor will be a ...
