Homework Statement


A current pulse is fed to the partial circuit shown in Figure P32.20. The current begins at zero, becomes 10.0A between t=0 and t= 200microseconds and then is zero once again. Determine the current in the inductor as a function of time.


Homework Equations



I= E/R(1-e^-t/T)

The Attempt at a Solution



not really sure what to do here or if that is even the right equation to use.
