CHAPTER 30: Inductance, Electromagnetic Oscillations, and AC Circuits Responses to Questions 1. ( a ) For the maximum value of the mutual inductance, place the coils close together, face to face, on the same axis. ( b ) For the least possible mutual inductance, place the coils with their faces perpendicular to each other. 2. The magnetic field near the end of the first solenoid is less than it is in the center. Therefore the flux through the second coil would be less than that given by the formula, and the mutual inductance would be lower. 3. Yes. If two coils have mutual inductance, then they each have the capacity for self- inductance. Any coil that experiences a changing current will have a self-inductance. 4. The energy density is greater near the center of a solenoid, where the magnetic field is greater. 5. To create the greatest self-inductance, bend the wire into as many loops as possible. To create the least self-inductance, leave the wire as a straight piece of wire. 6. ( a ) No. The time needed for the LR circuit to reach a given fraction of its maximum possible current depends on the time constant, τ = L/R , which is independent of the emf. ( b ) Yes. The emf determines the maximum value of the current ( I max = V 0 /R ,) and therefore will affect the time it takes to reach a particular value of current. 7. A circuit with a large inductive time constant is resistant to changes in the current. When a switch is opened, the inductor continues to force the current to flow. A large charge can build up on the switch, and may be able to ionize a path for itself across a small air gap, creating a spark.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
