Hi,
your "question" is not exactly very clear, but I try my best. If you
want a good answer, you should put some effort into putting a good
question. See below
Sincerely, Daniel

I is used as the imaginary unit and can not be used as a variable name.
As for i, there is no problem using it as a variable name.
Then other problem, how do I set

Guessing from your equation I think you have a parallel circuit of an
resitor and a capacitor. But then the term dv/dr should read dv/dt. A
sensible question is to ask for the voltage, given the current. As you
have a first order DG you also need a starting value, say v[0]==0.
Well, this gives the following equations:
eq={i[t]==v[t]/r+c v'[t], v[0]==0};
Lets make an example by choosing:
i[t_]=1; r=1; c=1;
this is solved for the time {0,1} by:
sol= v/. NDSolve[eq,v,{t,0,1}][[1]];
and plotted:
Plot[sol[xt],{t,0,1}]
