Unformatted text preview: fact that each of the suggested output waveform has a flat part (zero time derivative) by the end of each half period. Under DC steady state conditions, the inductor acts as a short circuit; thus the voltage across the inductor is zero, therefore, the output voltage (across the resistor) equals the input voltage. This eliminates choices C and D. Now we have to sort out the remaining choices A, B and E. Due to the continuity demands, the inductor current does not change abruptly. Due to KCL, the inductor current equals the resistor current thus the resistor current does not change abruptly. Due to Ohm’s law, the resistor voltage (= output voltage) equals the resistor current multiplied by a constant (= resistance) thus it does not change abruptly. In o...
