When the current in one coil changes at a rate of 3.1 A/s, an emf of V is induced in a second nearby coil. What is the mutual inductance of the two coils?
Two coils close to each other have a mutual inductance of 36 mH. If the current in one coil decays according to , where and , what is the emf induced in the second coil immediately after the current starts to decay at ?
A 500 turn solenoid is 0.60 m long and 5.5 cm in diameter. Inside the solenoid, a small single-turn circular coil is fixed in place with its face perpendicular to the long axis of the solenoid. What is the mutual inductance of this system?
