Inductive Circuits I Solution 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 1 2 3 4 5 6 Number of Students Answer Lecture S10: Inductive Circuits I The correct answer is #1. Immediately before the switch is closed, the current through L is zero. Inductors resist current change, so immediately after the switch is closed, the inductor current is zero it briefly looks like an open circuit. So the current flow through A is the same as through B and C . The class did pretty well on this one, with a majority answering correctly.
