# Questions tagged [inductance]

The property of an electrical conductor through which a change in current through it induces an electromotive force in both the conductor itself as well as in any nearby conductors by mutual inductance. Also use more broadly for electromagnetic phenomena in solenoids.

### Cannot catch a minus sign mistake when deriving the ODE for an LC circuit

It's probably a very basic question but I just cannot wrap my mind around it. I'll just try to derive the differential equation for an LC circuit: According to the law of induction, in a solenoid we ...

### How to solve the transient response of a general $RLC$ network?

There is a $RLC$ network $\{V_i\}$ with a complex impedance $Z_{ij}$ on each edge. all vertices have initial voltage $V_i$ and all edges have initial current $I_{ij}$. Now, is there a general way to ...

### Which magnetic field is the one in the inductance equation?

Any self induction problem that can be solved via $emf=-N\frac{\Delta \phi}{\Delta t}$ should be equivalently solvable via $-L\frac{\Delta i}{\Delta t}$. What if the coil is already existing in a ...

### Voltage measured by a Volt meter on a coil

This question is asked on the 2002 Canadian Association of Physicists Prize Exam: By all logic, the voltage across an inductor in a circuit should be the same as the induced EMF. Or, if there is also ...

### Voltage drop across an ideal inductor

I was afraid to type the title of the question though there are lot of answers to similar questions. I spent half a day going reading these questions and trying to understand the answers posted and ...

### How is potential difference created in an inductor [duplicate]

As far as I know potential difference can only be created by electric field created by static charges, but in case of inductor non-conservative electric field is induced.

### How do non-ideal inductors behave in a circuit?

I cannot comprehend how can we break a seemingly non-ideal choke coil into just a pure resistor and inductor in series according to the following solution of a question. Considering the data in the ...
