Doubt about inductance
Suppose I have an ideal circuit with zero resistance and some inductance L = 1H say and hooked up to an ideal battery of say 5V. And I thrown in the switch.
I know that the moment I throw in the switch, a huge di/dt causes a back emf, which is exactly equal to the source voltage, -5V.
And yet the current keeps growing in the circuit.?
How is that possible? I fully understand that the emf exists BECAUSE THERE IS A di/dt, if there was no di/dt, there wouldn't be the back emf. so clearly the current must 'accelerate', but I fail to convince myself 'what'
