Unformatted text preview: on plant life in the Pacific Northwest,
your biological team utilizes a highly sensitive gas chromatograph (GC) which must constantly be
recharged in the field. Because it is so sensitive, a charging device is needed that utilizes magnetic
induction to generate the induced current used to charge the GC. In its simplest form, a 1000 turn
solenoid with radius 5 cm and length 20 cm is inserted coaxially and into the GC which has a slightly
larger pickup coil with 500 turns. If the smaller solenoid has a time varying current with a maximum of
10A and a frequency of 30 Hz, what is the maximum current generated in the GC?...
