    Hi. Can someone please show me how to do the following problem? I am not too sure how to approach it.

    Question: Given an RL circuit in which there's a 9.0 V battery, R = 5.5 ohms, L = 6.1 mH, and there's a switch that can be opened or closed, how much energy is stored in the inductor after the switch has been closed a long time?

    Thank you.
