Unformatted text preview: Inductance Inductance Text sections 32.1 - 32.3 Practice: Chapter 32, problems 5, 7, 12, 33, 65 a), 65 b) A variable power supply is connected to a coil. The current in the coil creates a magnetic field. What happens when the power supply dial is turned down, reducing the supply current? What happens when the current is turned up? “Self “Self-Inductance” Inductance”- A circuit carrying current I generates its own magnetic field B ; so there will be a flux Φ B through the circuit.- i f I changes, an emf E is induced in the same circuit . (“self-inductance”)- Lenz’s Law: E tends to oppose the change in I . (self-inductance gives “inertia” to currents) From the Biot-Savart Law, T he self-inductance L is the proportionality constant: unit: 1 henry (H) = 1 volt/(A/s) = 1 (V•s)/A dt dI I I B − ∝ ⇒ ∝ Φ ⇒ ∝ ε B r dt dI L ε − = (definition of L) I N L Φ = dt dI L dt d N − = Φ − = ε (so 1 henry = 1 weber-turn/ampere) An equivalent definition of L uses the flux produced per ampere...
