one more electro-magnetic question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

here's the set-up: two inductors, the A-B has a signal source hooked-up, C-D is open circuit.

i1 is given as a triangular wave, v2 as a step wave for:Code (Text):

->i1

A C

) ( +

) ( V2

) ( -

B D

0 < t < 0.5, i1 has negative slope below t-axis, v2=4;

0.5<t<1, i1 has positive slope below t-axis, v2 = -4;

1<t<1.5, i1 has positive slope above t-axis, v2 = 0

so, i clearly see that voltage is derivative of current and there is a negative sign involved, so the dots are placed diagonally?

If not, could you explain that as well?

Thanks in advance...
