This might be absurd question for many here but I'm trying to picture a bit in depth what is happening in an LR circuit and confusion arises.
Below is how a series LR circuit behaves when the switch is turned ON:
I can understand the basic explanation and the derivations.
But there is a particular part that confuses me here conceptually.
The texts mention that, the moment the switch is turned ON the current wants to increase but due to the self-inductance an opposing voltage induced as -L*di/dt which is equal to the battery/source voltage hence no current flows at time zero. The equations also support that.
But they say: The self-inductance is fighting the current's will to go through the circuit, and there comes a time that the self-inductance loses the fight if we wait long enough and eventually the current reaches to the maximum value.
All of these are clear if we look at the equations, but what really happens at the coil that there comes a time that the self-inductance loses the fight? I mean why doesn't its induced opposing voltage stay constant forever and stop any current flow? Is there a more phenomenal explanation rather than maths here?
