Mutual & Self Inductance
Mutual Inductance (
M
):
Consider
two fixed coils
with a varying
current
I
1
in
coil 1
producing a magnetic
field
B
1
.
The
induced EMF
in
coil 2
due
to
B
1
is proportional to the magnetic flux
through
coil 2
,

where
N
2
is the number of loops in
coil 2
and
φ
2
is the flux through a
single
loop in
coil 2
.
However, we know that
B
1
is proportional to
I
1
which
means that
Φ
2
is proportional to
I
1
.
The
mutual inductance M
is defined
to be the
constant of proportionality between
Φ
2
and
I
1
and depends on
the geometry of the situation,
