Time Constant - LR Circuit (3:37)
Today we explore the intriguing concept of time constants in LR circuits. Building on our previous derivations, we unravel the significance of the time constant, expertly explained by Bobby. The time constant, represented as the ratio of inductance to resistance, holds a key role in LR circuit equations. Bo and Bobby emphasize its importance, revealing that one time constant corresponds to a 63.2 percent change in the circuit's current and its time rate of change. As the graphs unfold, they illustrate the fascinating behavior of current and its rate of change over time.
