Energy in inductor is given as (Li(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}])/2

but energy is power absorbed in t secs is E=integral(from 0 to t)Lidi here i is current.

since this integral stretches from 0 to t After doing the integral the current i must be turned into the time variable i.e E=(Lt^{2})/2;

Then why are we writing it as i^{2}what is this i represent. Is this the current i and this Energy i the same or different.

Same problem for capacitance in terms of voltage
