Lesson: Mutual Inductance of Conducting LoopsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the mutual inductance of systems involving multiple solenoids or conducting loops.
Sample Question Videos
A coil of 40 turns is wrapped around a long solenoid of cross-sectional area m2. The solenoid is 0.50 m long and has 500 turns.
What is the mutual inductance of this system?
The outer coil is replaced by a coil of 40 turns whose radius is three times that of the solenoid. What is the mutual inductance of this configuration?
An emf of V is induced in a coil while the current in a nearby coil is decreasing at a rate of 2.7 A/s. What is the mutual inductance of the two coils?
A toroidal coil has a mean radius of 16 cm and a cross-sectional area of 0.25 cm2; it is wound uniformly with 1,000 turns. A second toroidal coil of 750 turns is wound uniformly over the first coil. Ignoring the variation of the magnetic field within a toroid, determine the mutual inductance of the two coils.
