AP Physics C Mrs. Coyle

Induced emf and induced current are caused by changing magnetic fields.

Self-Inductance Switch Closed: current increases, creates an increasing magnetic field which in turn induces an induced emf Switch Open: No current and no magnetic field

The direction of the induced emf is opposite the direction of the emf of the battery
Gradually the net current increases to an equilibrium value

This effect is called self-inductance
Because the changing flux through the circuit and the resultant induced emf arise from the circuit itself The emf εL is called a self-induced emf

Inductors In general wires between resistors cause a small self inductance which is ignored. However, some circuit elements such as solenoids can cause a significant inductance, L. These objects are called inductors. Symbol for an inductor:

Inductance Induced emf:
L is a proportionality constant called the inductance of the coil and it depends on the geometry of the coil and other physical characteristics The inductance is a measure of the opposition to a change in current

Inductance Units The SI unit of inductance is the henry (H)
Named for Joseph Henry

Inductance in a Solenoid (Coil)
The polarity of the induced emf, from Lenz’s Law, opposes the change in magnetic flux.

Inductance of a Solenoid
Assume a uniformly wound solenoid having N turns and length ℓ Assume ℓ is much greater than the radius of the solenoid The interior magnetic field is uniform:

Inductance of a Solenoid
(eq.1) Faraday’s Law Equate eq. 1 and 2 solve for L for a solenoid: Remember also : (eq.2)

Inductance of a Solenoid
The magnetic flux through each turn is Note that L depends on the geometry of the object

RL Circuit (Resistor and Inductor)
Kirchhoff’s loop rule for: Time Constant, t

RL Circuit Current The inductor affects the current exponentially
The current does not instantly increase to its final equilibrium value If there is no inductor, the exponential term goes to zero and the current would instantaneously reach its maximum value as expected

RL Circuit, Time Constant ,t
t = L / R When T=t, I= Ieq, then, the current has reached 63.2% of its equilibrium value.

Energy Stored in an Inductor, U
The rate at which energy is being supplied by the battery (Power=IV) Remember for a capacitor:

Ex: RL Circuit What happens JUST AFTER the switch is closed?
What happens LONG AFTER switch has been closed? What happens in between? Note: At t=0, a capacitor acts like a regular wire; an inductor acts like an open wire. After a long time, a capacitor acts like an open wire, and an inductor acts like a regular wire.

Ex: RL Circuits Immediately after the switch is closed, what is the potential difference across the inductor? (a) 0 V (b) 9 V (c) 0.9 V 10 W 10 H 9 V Immediately after the switch, current in circuit = 0. So, potential difference across the resistor = 0 So, the potential difference across the inductor = E9 V

Ex: RL Circuits Immediately after the switch is closed, what is the current i through the 10 W resistor? (a) A (b) 0.3 A (c) 0 40 W 10 H 3 V 10 W Immediately after switch is closed, current through inductor = 0. Hence, current trhough battery and through 10 W resistor is i = (3 V)/(10W) = 0.3 A Long after the switch has been closed, what is the current in the 40W resistor? (a) A (b) 0.3 A (c) A Long after switch is closed, potential across inductor = 0. Hence, current through 40W resistor = (3 V)/(40W) = A

How does the current in the circuit change with time?
Ex: RL Circuits How does the current in the circuit change with time? i “Time constant” of RL circuit = L/R i(t) Small L/R Large L/R t

Ex: Energy Stored in a B-Field
9 V 10 W 10 H The switch has been in position “a” for a long time. It is now moved to position “b” without breaking the circuit. What is the total energy dissipated by the resistor until the circuit reaches equilibrium? When switch has been in position “a” for long time, current through inductor = (9V)/(10W) = 0.9A. Energy stored in inductor = (0.5)(10H)(0.9A)2 = 4.05 J When inductor “discharges” through the resistor, all this stored energy is dissipated as heat = 4.05 J.

Energy Density of a Magnetic Field
U = ½ L I 2 Aℓ is the volume of the solenoid Magnetic energy density, uB : This applies to any region in which a magnetic field exists (not just the solenoid)
