Ohm's law:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{R}}}$

Equivalent resistance for resistors in series:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{eq}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}{{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{+}}{{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{n}}}}$

An inductor has infinite resistance at t = 0s. Therefore, it acts as an open circuit.
