1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An ideal inductor L = 88 mH is connected to a source whose peak potential difference is 65 V. If the frequency is 90 Hz, what is the current at 5 ms? 2. Relevant equations il= Il(ωt-ø) and Il = Vl / Xl 3. The attempt at a solution So I did get the answer right, by chance. I would like to understand... Why does the definition of an inductive load specifies that its current is lagging behind the voltage of the inductor but to get the right answer, I didn't minus my angular frequency and the phase constant.
