In an LC circuit, the capacitor that is initially charged to a finite value starts to discharge cross the inductor, initially the current increases and the inductor opposes it, but as the current is supplied against the back emf, due to the discharging of the capacitor, wont it reduce the value of current flowing in the circuit and cause the inductor to suport the current flow and help completely discharge the capacitor. How is it possible that when the capacitor is fully discharged, when the current is zero to have the entire energy to be stored in the induction, when the current is zero, there is no magnetic field and the how can the inductor store energy in that case.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
