Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points Given: = 1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 . A solenoid has 150 turns of wire uniformly wrapped around an airfilled core, which has a diameter of 11 . 9 mm and a length of 6 . 55 cm. Calculate the selfinductance of the solenoid. Correct answer: 4 . 80104 10 5 H. Explanation: Given: The number of turns in the solenoid N = 150 turns, the diameter of the solenoid D = 11 . 9 mm, and the length of the solenoid l = 6 . 55 cm. The selfinductance of a solenoid is given by L 1 = N I , where is the total flux inside the solenoid and I is the current in the wire wrapped around the solenoid. From the text we can use Amperes Law to find that the magnetic field in the solenoid is B = N I , where = is the magnetic permeability of the air core which is the same as free space. The magnetic flux in the solenoid is = B A = B D 2 4 . Using the above expressions for and B , we obtain for the inductance of the solenoid L 1 = N B A I = N 2 D 2 4 = (1 . 25664 10 6 N / A 2 )(150) 2 (0 . 0119 m) 2 4(0 . 0655 m) = 4 . 80104 10 5 H . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points The core is replaced with a soft iron rod that has the same dimensions, but a magnetic per meability 800 . What is the new inductance? Correct answer: 0 . 0384083 H. Explanation: Let L 2 be the inductance of the solenoid with the soft iron core. In the first part of the problem we just need to change by . Thus L 2 = N 2 D 2 4 = L 1 = 800(4 . 80104 10 5 H) = 0 . 0384083 H . 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A 3 . 2 H inductor carries a steady current of 0 . 595 A. When the switch in the circuit is thrown open, the current disappears in 7 . 3 ms....
