Unformatted text preview: h inductor immediately AFTER switch is closed IS THE SAME AS
the current through inductor immediately BEFORE switch is closed Immediately before switch is closed: IL = 0 since no battery in loop R3 Calculation
Calculation The switch in the circuit shown has been open for a long time. At t = 0, the switch is closed. R1

We know IL = 0 immediately after switch is closed
Immediately after switch is closed, circuit looks V
like: I2 = R1
I= VR2 R3
R2 + R3 I R2 V

Calculation The switch in the circuit shown has been open for a long time. At t = 0, the switch is closed.
What is dIL/dt, the time rate of change of the current through the inductor immediately after switch is closed R1
