Self-Inductance

Back emf

The current I takes some finite time to reach its steady level after the switch S is
closed, likewise it takes finite time after opening S to reach zero level. This
behaviour could be explained when we define the self-inductance L which is a
results of flux change with time, but flux change resulted from filed change with
0 I
time which in turn resulted from current:

Self-Induced emf
Self-induced emf is always proportional to the time rate
of change of current:

dI
  L
If the current increases,
dt
the increasing magnetic
flux creates an induced
emf in the coil having the
polarity shown by the
dashed battery.
The polarity of the
induced emf reverses if
the current decreases.

Self-Inductance
The inductance of a coil depends on its geometry. This is
analogous to the capacitance of a capacitor depending on
the geometry of its plats.

## Inductor vs. Capacitor NB

L

The SI unit of inductance
is the Henry (H)

## Like capacitor an inductor

stores electric energy carried
by the magnetic field.

The resistance is a
measure of the
opposition to current, in
comparison, inductance
is a measure of the
opposition to a change
in current.

Now open switch S1 and then close switch S2 a

real inductance will slow the decay of the
current.

Example
If the self-inductance of a coil made of 100 turns is L = 80 mH, then the
magnetic flux through it when a current I = 10 mA passes through the
coil is:

a) 800 Wb
b) 80Wb
c) 8000 Wb
d) 12.5 Wb
e) 8 Wb
