1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A coil of resistance 8.0 ohms and self-inductance 4.0 mH is suddenly connected across a constant potential difference of 100 V. Let t = 0 be the time of connection, at which the current is zero. Find the current I and its rate of change dI/dt at times (a) t = 0, (b) t = 0.1 s, (c) t = 0.5 s, and (d) t = 1.0 s. 2. Relevant equations If=E_o / R = 100V/8.00ohms = 12.5A T(time constant)= L/R = 4.0 mH/8ohms = .500 ms 3. The attempt at a solution Substitute If and T to obtain I = (12.5A) (1-e^(-t/.500ms)) Express dI/dt : dI/dt = 12.5A(-e^(-t/.500ms)) <--- here is where im stuck. Seems like there should be a numer in the thousands to multiply with units s^-1 to cancel out the other units which in return would yiels aan anser like: = (##kA)e^(-t/.500ms) Then substitute all the reset of the values in. Not sure what i am missing here Please help me!!!
