    Substitute P=Li.di/dt in the equation.. dt cancels out

    why they change t to I
    on the interval

    Because now we are integrating with respect to i as it goes from 0 to I. First, we were integrating with respect to t which was going from 0 to t. It means that as t goes from 0 to t, i goes from 0 to I and that i is dependent on t.

    i(t=0) = 0
    i(t=t) = I
