Hi. Could I get some assistance answering this conceptual question please? I am not too sure how to approach this.

Question: In considering an ac circuit consisting of a light bulb in series with an inductor, we know that the effect of the inductor is to cause the light bulb to shine less brightly. Would the same be true in a direct-current (dc) circuit? Explain.

Thank you.
