In the circuit shown all elements are ideal and the switch $$S$$ is operated at $$10$$ $$kHz$$ and $$60$$% duty ratio. The capacitor is large enough so that the ripple across it is negligible and at steady state acquires a voltage as shown. The peak current in amperes drawn from the $$50$$ $$V$$ $$DC$$ source is ________. (Give the answer up to one decimal place.) 3
