The Current in a RL Circuit Calculator will calculate the:

- The current flowing at any instant in a RL circuit when the current in the circuit is increasing
- The current flowing at any instant in a RL circuit when the current in the circuit is decreasing

**Calculation Considerations:** The conducting wire of circuit and material the inductor is made from are both uniform and they have the same thickness everywhere; the source supplies DC current

The current flowing at any instant in a RL circuit when the current in the circuit is increasing is A [Ampere] |

The current flowing at any instant in a RL circuit when the current in the circuit is decreasing is A [Ampere] |
