Why is it that current decay happens faster than current growth in a an inductance circuit?

Asked by Renu Mariam John 1st March 2013, 7:55 PM

In an inductance circuit, the property of inductor is to oppose any change in the initial condition. thus as magnitude of current is increased, it is opposed by an induced current in the opposite direction due to the induced field.
Where as when the current is decreased, it cannot be supplemented that much by the induced field because the field is not that much coupled with the inductor.
