Answer:(a). The initial current at t=0 is zero.

(b). The current as time approaches infinity is 4.7 A

(c). The current at a time of 6.25 s is 4.33 A.

(d). The time is 1.69 sec.

Explanation:Given that,Inductance = 7.35 H

Voltage = 14.1 V

Resistance= 3.00 ohm

(a). We need to calculate the initial current at t = 0Using formula of current[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-e^{\dfrac{-tR}{L}})[/tex]

Put the value into the formula

[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-e^{\dfrac{-0\timesR}{L}})[/tex]

[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-1)[/tex]

[tex]I=0[/tex]

(b). We need to calculate the current as time approaches infinity.Using formula of current[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-e^{\dfrac{-tR}{L}})[/tex]

Put the value into the formula

[tex]I=(\dfrac{14.1}{3.00})(1-e^{\dfrac{-\infty\times3.00}{7.35}})[/tex]

[tex]I=\dfrac{14.1}{3.00}(1-0)[/tex]

[tex]I=4.7\ A[/tex]

(c). We need to calculate the current at a time of 6.25 sUsing formula of current[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-e^{\dfrac{-tR}{L}})[/tex]

Put the value into the formula

[tex]I=(\dfrac{14.1}{3.00})(1-e^{\dfrac{-6.25\times3.00}{7.35}})[/tex]

[tex]I=4.33\ A[/tex]

(d). We need to calculate the timeUsing formula of current[tex]I=(\dfrac{E}{R})(1-e^{\dfrac{-tR}{L}})[/tex]

Put the value into the formula

[tex]2.35=(\dfrac{14.1}{3.00})(1-e^{\dfrac{-t\times3.00}{7.35}})[/tex]

[tex]ln(0.5)=(\dfrac{-t\times3.00}{7.35}})[/tex]

[tex]t=\dfrac{(\ln(2)\times7.35)}{3.00}[/tex]

[tex]t=1.69\ s[/tex]

Hence, (a). The initial current at t=0 is zero.(b). The current as time approaches infinity is 4.7 A(c). The current at a time of 6.25 s is 4.33 A.(d). The time is 1.69 sec.
