The contact switch in this circuit has been open for a very long time. The switch is connected to the circuit at time t=0.
What is the voltage across the inductor (VL) immediately after the switch is closed?
The answer to this question is 3 V, but why isn't it VL = 5 V?
I thought the inductor would have the voltage source as it's own voltage immediately after it is connected to the voltage source?
