PHY2049 Spring 2005 1 Prof. Darin Acosta Prof. Paul Avery April 4, 2005 PHY2049, Spring 2005 Exam 3 Solutions 1. Which of the following statements is true about the LR circuit shown? It is (1): Before the switch is closed, there is no current flowing through the inductor. When the switch is closed, a current will try to start flowing through the inductor, but by Faraday&s law and Lenz&s law, the inductor will set up an emf to resist the increasing B-field, thus trying to keep the current zero. Another way to see this is that immediately after the switch is closed, the voltage across R 2 is the same as that of the battery. So the current in the branch containing the inductor is just that for an LR circuit containing only R 1 and L. The expression for that is: 1 1 1 10 w h e n 0 R t L ie t R ε  =− = =   2. Suppose that the battery in the previous problem is replaced with an AC source with emf given by () 40sin 120 t επ = . Which one of the following equations can possibly describe the current in the inductor? Again, the current in the inductor is given by that of a driven LR circuit containing only R 1 and L, since the voltage across R 2 is given by the time-varying emf 40sin 120 t = . The current in an inductor for a mostly inductive load (reactance from any capacitance is (1) Just after the switch is closed R1 carries zero current. (2) Just after the switch is closed the two resistors carry identical current. (3) Just after the switch is closed the current in R1 is greater than that in R2. (4) A long time after the switch is closed R1 carries zero current. (5) If the switch is opened after being closed for a long time the current in both resistors immediately drops to zero.
