In this article on p. 364 Devoret writes the "equations of motion" (using KCL) for the electric circuit shown on p. 363. He uses flux instead of voltages. The sign convention he uses, as shown on p. ...
As radio amateurs we've all learned the various relationships of power, voltage, current and resistance as expressed in Ohm's Law. My question relates to the following simple circuit showing an ideal ...
When a wire with no resistance is connected to the terminals of an ideal battery, will a current exist in the circuit? If a capacitor is added to the circuit, will it be charged by the battery or will ...
A while ago, there was some news about micro-scale graphene-based supercapacitors and these devices can charge and discharge a hundred to a thousand times faster than standard batteries. Question: ...
I know that you can use induction to create a current in a superconducting loop, but this only works as long as the coil that induces the field has a current flowing through it. And obviously, this ...
Superconducting wire can host a low current magnetic field. I do not know if it supports a corresponding electrical field. Can a superconducting wire that sustains a current accelerate a DC motor? ...
