[AMRadio] Extra Class isn't dumbed down? (was Viking 1)

See Maxwell's equations but basically what Rob said. For an inductor
v=Ldi/dt. So current through an inductor is proportional to the integral
over time of the voltage.  The integral of a steady state sine wave is a
sine wave lagging by 90 degrees. For the first cycle you probably need
Laplace transforms to figure it out exactly but that course was a long time
ago.
Howzzat?
