Print Version with Answers Energy Stored in an Inductor Description: Numerical calculation of the inductance necessary to store a given amount of energy. The electric-power industry is interested in finding a way to store electric energy during times of low demand for use during peak-demand times. One way of achieving this goal is to use large inductors. Part A What inductance would be needed to store energy (kilowatt-hours) in a coil carrying current ? This is probably not the best way to store energy: unless the coil is a superconductor, the amount of heat dissipated in the coil would be enormous. At this point, there is no way to produce large superconducting coils. Think of this problem as a practice exercise rather than a realistic example. Hint A.1 The formula for the energy stored in a current-carrying inductor Recall the formula for energy stored in an inductor: . Hint A.2 Express the energy in joules What is the energy expressed in joules? Express your answer numerically, to three significant figures. ANSWER: = joules ANSWER: = H RL Circuit Phasor Drawings Applet Vector Description: For an RL circuit, given the current phasor, draw the resistor, inductor, and total voltage phasors. (vector applet) An RL circuit is driven by an AC voltage source as shown in the figure. Page 1 of 11 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View 2/23/2010
