A series R-L transient circuit is connected to a voltage source of E= 40V through a switch as shown. Suppose the switch is closed at time t=0μs and it was observed that the current iL flowing through the inductor rises to 4mA at time t=20μs and remains at 4mA after t=20μs.
(i) Find the R-L time constant τ in μs for the storage phase. Resistor given is 10kΩ
The Attempt at a Solution
0.004=0.004(1-e-20x10-6/τ) -> 0.004-0.004=0
0=-e-20x10-6/τ -> Wanted to take ln for both side, ln 0 =error
unable to continue, please help, thanks.
(ii) Calculate the amount of energy Wl in nJ, stored in the inductor after 1 minute.
How do we know 1min=60sec>>5time constant?
