It's been happening to me for years. I finally decided to ask users who are better with "practical physics" when I was told that my experience – that I am going to describe momentarily – prove that I ...
I've had this conceptual problem with Faraday's law and inductance for a while now. Take the example of a simple current loop with increasing area in a constant field (as in this answer). So ...
I've been reading about self-inductance in circuits in M. Purcell's Electricity and Magnetism and came across an interesting fact: "What happens if we open the switch after the current $I0$ has been ...
When mutual inductance is occurring between two coils, is self inductance always occurring in each individual coil?
When a coil connected to an AC generator creates an EMF in another nearby coil (mutual inductance), is self inductance simultaneously occurring in both coils?
You are given a long length W of copper wire. How would you arrange it to obtain the maximum self-inductance? Why? I am trying to use the equation $$L=\mu_o n^2 l A$$ I try to solve it using a ...
I am currently on the inductors unit in my Navy schooling and I have two questions about these formulas that I learned about. As I'm aware, the ability of an inductor to concentrate a magnetic field ...
