I was reading about the energy stored in an Inductor and first of all I had the question that is this actually stored? The inductor produces a magnetic field which exerts a force on electrons. Isn't the energy spent on this?
While in a capacitor it doesn't exert any force as charges don't flow in between capacitors so I understood the energy stored in field of a capacitor. But I couldn't understand in an inductor. If someone could explain I would be grateful.
