I Current over time

  1. Oct 2, 2016 #1
    An RL circuit has L=5, R = 200, Vin =100t. Suppose the initial current through the circuit is I(0)=1.

    a) find the current through the inductor. b) sketch it. Find the voltage through the Inductor. c) Sketch it

    I feel like it know how to do this but im getting a linear function which doesn't seem right to me

    What sort of function are you expecting and why? (Please show your working.)
    Have you checked LR circuits coursework, notes, or theory anywhere?
    ie - do you know the differential equation the circuit is supposed to satisfy?
