Faraday’s Law, Inductance, and RL Circuits NAME: ____________________________________ NAME: ____________________________________ NAME: ____________________________________ RECITATION SECTION: __________________________ INSTRUCTOR: __________________________ DATE: __________________________ This activity is based on the following concepts: Faraday's Law of Induction: If the magnetic flux Φ B through a closed loop C changes with time, an induced electric field E is created. The rate of change of the magnetic flux and the electric field are related by: dt d s d E B C Φ - = Self-induction: If a current i is a coil changes with time, an emf is induced in the coil. o This self-induced emf is dt di L L - = ε , where L is the inductance of the coil (inductor). o Inductance is measured in units of henries (H) Rules of thumb for RL circuits: o When you make a change in an RL circuit, initially, an inductor acts to oppose the change in current. A long time later, it acts like an ordinary piece of wire. o Circuits with inductors resist any changes in current; so, if you throw a switch, the current through an inductor cannot change instantaneously (unless, of course, you break the circuit…)

    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.
