(g) i 1 = 0, and (h) i 2 = 0. 56. (a) The inductor prevents a fast build-up of the current through it, so immediately after the switch is closed, the current in the inductor is zero. It follows that 1 12 100V 3.33A. 10.0 +20.0 i RR ε == = +Ω (b) 21 3.33A. ii (c) After a suitably long time, the current reaches steady state. Then, the emf across the inductor is zero, and we may imagine it replaced by a wire. The current in R 3 is i 1 i 2 .
