Self Inductance Wh M l I d d ib h ff f Whereas Mutual Inductance describes the effect of a changing current in one coil on another coil, there is also an induced EMF in the first coil ITSELF! That is (or should be) completely expected: a coil carrying a changing current , itself experiences the changing flux as well and thus should itself experience a self-induced EMF well, and thus should itself experience a self induced EMF… – the self-induced EMF implies the existence of a voltage difference Δ V between the terminals of the coil … • that opposes the original current change Taking the definition of mutual inductance , we can easily define the SELF-INDUCTANCE L : where E 1 is the self-induced EMF due to the changing 1 1 coil di V dt     E L (Note the "symbolic" sign!)

### 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.
