1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am attempting to understand this example shown below: 2. Relevant equations During stead state DC, the capacitor is an open circuit and the inductor is short circuited. 3. The attempt at a solution The questions I have are really related to the concepts as I don't seem to understand it well enough even after reading through the chapter many times. 1- How is Vc equal to -20V? Since Vc is an open circuit, how would there be a voltage across it? 2- My understanding is that the inductor current (iL) is zero because there is no voltage source in the circuit during steady state DC. Please confirm if my understanding is correct. 3- I have read through the book many times and I don't seem to understand how this is determined. If someone can provide a detailed explanation, I would really appreciate it!
