2 Induced emf and induced current are caused by changing magnetic fields.
3 Self-InductanceSwitch Closed: current increases, creates an increasing magnetic field which in turn induces an induced emfSwitch Open: No current and no magnetic field
4 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
5 This effect is called self-inductance Because the changing flux through the circuit and the resultant induced emf arise from the circuit itselfThe emf εL is called a self-induced emf
6 InductorsIn 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:
7 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 characteristicsThe inductance is a measure of the opposition to a change in current
8 Inductance Units The SI unit of inductance is the henry (H) Named for Joseph Henry
9 Inductance in a Solenoid (Coil) The polarity of the induced emf, from Lenz’s Law, opposes the change in magnetic flux.
10 Inductance of a Solenoid Assume a uniformly wound solenoid having N turns and length ℓAssume ℓ is much greater than the radius of the solenoidThe interior magnetic field is uniform:
11 Inductance of a Solenoid (eq.1)Faraday’s LawEquate eq. 1 and 2 solve for L for a solenoid:Remember also :(eq.2)
12 Inductance of a Solenoid The magnetic flux through each turn isNote that L depends on the geometry of the object
13 RL Circuit (Resistor and Inductor) Kirchhoff’s loop rule for:Time Constant, t
14 RL Circuit Current The inductor affects the current exponentially The current does not instantly increase to its final equilibrium valueIf there is no inductor, the exponential term goes to zero and the current would instantaneously reach its maximum value as expected
15 RL Circuit, Time Constant ,t t = L / RWhen T=t,I= Ieq,then, the current has reached 63.2% of its equilibrium value.
18 Energy Stored in an Inductor, U The rate at which energy is being supplied by the battery (Power=IV)Remember for a capacitor:
19 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.
20 Ex: RL CircuitsImmediately after the switch is closed, what is the potential difference across the inductor?(a) 0 V(b) 9 V(c) 0.9 V10 W10 H9 VImmediately after the switch, current in circuit = 0.So, potential difference across the resistor = 0So, the potential difference across the inductor = E9 V
21 Ex: RL CircuitsImmediately after the switch is closed, what is the current i through the 10 W resistor?(a) A(b) 0.3 A(c) 040 W10 H3 V10 WImmediately after switch is closed, current through inductor = 0.Hence, current trhough battery and through 10 W resistor is i = (3 V)/(10W) = 0.3 ALong after the switch has been closed, what is the current in the 40W resistor?(a) A(b) 0.3 A(c) ALong after switch is closed, potential across inductor = 0.Hence, current through 40W resistor = (3 V)/(40W) = A
22 How does the current in the circuit change with time? Ex: RL CircuitsHow does the current in the circuit change with time?i“Time constant” of RL circuit = L/Ri(t)Small L/RLarge L/Rt
23 Ex: Energy Stored in a B-Field 9 V10 W10 HThe 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 JWhen inductor “discharges” through the resistor, all this stored energy is dissipated as heat = 4.05 J.
24 Energy Density of a Magnetic Field U = ½ L I 2Aℓ is the volume of the solenoidMagnetic energy density, uB :This applies to any region in which a magnetic field exists (not just the solenoid)
