254 Chapt. 33 Alternating Current or AC
power equality result to derive the relationship between the primary current
I
p
and the
secondary current
I
s
. Assume that the power in both coils obeys
P
=
I
Δ
V ,
where
I
is the current through the device and Δ
V
is the potential change across the device
(which for ideal coils is the emf).
c) Find the formula that relates
N

, and
I
s
. Then give a combined ratio formula for
number of coil turns, coil emfs, and coil currents.
