Question:
I am a beginner in electronics and have been trying to learn about inductors for some time now. Is there somehow a way to make it easier to understand?


Replies:
Richard Feynman's "Lectures on Physics" ( there are three volumes) gives an accurate, but lucid description of the basic components of electrical circuits -- both AC and DC. You may have to read a couple of chapters, but you will find the effort rewarding. He was a masterful teacher.
