    Use the Laplace Transform method.
    Kirchoff's voltage law gives:
    vo(s) - i(s)*[sL + 1/sC ] = Vo (s)

    Now, vo(s) = 400/s
    i(t) = 10*e^(-200t) ==> i(s) = 10/(s+200)

    So, Vo(s) = 400/s - [10/(s+200)]*[ (1+s^2LC)/(sC)

    Use the partial fraction ...

    Solution Summary

    This answer gives the electrical voltage through using the diagram, properties of exponential decay functions, and electrical circuits. The Laplace Transform method especially was helpful in determining voltage during different times.
