Equivalent resistance for resistors in series:
For an LR circuit, the variation of current as a function of time is:
Equivalent resistance in the circuit:
Req = 200 + 100 = 300Ω
At t = 0 s, the current in the circuit in the figure is I0. At what time is the current ½ I0? Express your answer with the appropriate units.
