Electric current

Unit
Electrical current that slowly increases and reaches a saturation value when the RL circuit is closed.

Source voltage

Unit
Electrical voltage applied to the coil and resistor when the circuit is closed.

Electrical Resistance

Unit
Electrical resistance of a resistor connected in series with the coil.

Inductance

Unit
Inductance is a property of the coil and tells how much "resistance" the coil puts up to the change in current.

Time

Unit
Time elapsed since the circuit was closed.
