I have a circuit containing an inductor, 2 resistors and diode in series however there is also a switch.
The Attempt at a Solution
I thought that when the switch is closed there would be no current flowing through the right side of the circuit (resistor and diode) and therefore for part a) the time constant is L/R=10/20=0.5ms and steady state inductor current is just V/R=0.5A.
However, this can't be the case in order to do the show that question in part C), so I was wondering if someone could just explain the circuit to me when the switch is open and closed. Thank you!
