Anderson, Matthew – Homework 12 – Due: Apr 24 2008, noon – Inst: Vitaly 2 The switch is closed at t = 0. The current I through the inductor takes the form I = E R x 1 - e - t/τ x · where R x and τ x are to be determined. Find I immediately after the circuit is closed. 1. I = E R 1 + R 2 2. I = E R 2 3. I = 0 correct 4. I = E R 1 Explanation: Before the circuit is closed, no current is ±owing. When we have just closed the circuit we are at “ t = 0 + ”, a mathematical nota- tion meaning a very short time ² after t = 0. (Nothing happens in the circuit at t = 0, only immediately after when the switch is, indeed, closed. However, this is just a mathematical detail.) There are two loops in the prob- lem, one with E , R 1 , R 2 and one with E , R 1 , L . So at t = 0 + , the battery “wants to” drive a current through both loops. The ²rst loop presents no problem; since there is no in- ductance “working against us,” a current will immediately be set up. The second loop, how- ever, has an inductor which tries to prevent any change in the current going through it, and so goes up smoothly from I = 0, as can be seen in the given solution (just put t = 0 to ²nd I = 0). Therefore, at this instant, the inductor L carries no current, and we can ne- glect it when we ²nd the current through R 2 . The equivalent resistance is R eq = R 1 + R 2 so, from E = R eq I we ²nd I 2 = E R 1 + R 2 005 (part 2 of 5) 15 points Find I 2 immediately after the circuit is closed.
