A circuit consisting of an inductor and a resistor Review 30 4 LR Circuits The sum of potential differences around the loop gives Integrating gives the current as a function of time: . The time constant of an LR circuit is . . If the circuit is switched to short, then current decays Physics 208N-004 Lecture #24 – 18 March 2011 Chapter 30: 5 – LC Circuits 30 5 LC Circuits and Electromagnetic Oscillations An LC circuit is a charged capacitor shorted through an inductor.
