(a) Use a graphing utility to complete the table, where $y$ is the exact value of the solution, $y_{1}$ is the approximate solution using Euler's Method with $h=0.1, y_{2}$ is the approximate
solution using Euler's Method with $h=0.2, e_{1}$ is the absolute error $\left|y-y_{1}\right|, e_{2}$ is the absolute error $\left|y-y_{2}\right|$ and $r$ is the ratio $e_{1} / e_{2} .$
(b) What can you conclude about the ratio $r$ as $h$ changes?
(c) Predict the absolute error when $h=0.05$

### Problem 95

Electric Circuits The diagram shows a simple electric circuit consisting of a power source, a resistor, and an inductor.
A model of the current $I,$ in amperes $(\mathrm{A}),$ at time $t$ is given by the first-order differential equation
$L \frac{d I}{d t}+R I=E(t)$
where $E(t)$ is the voltage $(\mathrm{V})$ produced by the power source, $R$ is the resistance, in ohms $(\Omega),$ and $L$ is the inductance, in henrys (H). Suppose the electric circuit consists of a $24-\mathrm{V}$ power source, a $12-\Omega$ resistor, and a $4-\mathrm{H}$ inductor.
(a) Sketch a slope field for the differential equation.
(b) What is the limiting value of the current? Explain.
