How would you shape a given length of wire to give it the greatest self-inductance? The least?
Verify, as was concluded without proof in [link] , that units of $\text{T}\cdot {\text{m}}^{2}/A=\Omega \cdot \text{s}=\text{H}$ .
Two coils are placed close together in a physics lab to demonstrate Faraday’s law of induction. A current of 5.00 A in one is switched off in 1.00 ms, inducing a 9.00 V emf in the other. What is their mutual inductance?
1.80 mH
If two coils placed next to one another have a mutual inductance of 5.00 mH, what voltage is induced in one when the 2.00 A current in the other is switched off in 30.0 ms?
The 4.00 A current through a 7.50 mH inductor is switched off in 8.33 ms. What is the emf induced opposing this?

A device is turned on and 3.00 A flows through it 0.100 ms later. What is the self-inductance of the device if an induced 150 V emf opposes this?
Starting with ${\text{emf}}_{2}=-M\frac{\mathrm{\Delta}{I}_{1}}{\mathrm{\Delta}t}$ , show that the units of inductance are $(\text{V}\cdot \text{s})\text{/A}=\Omega \cdot \text{s}$ .

A large research solenoid has a self-inductance of 25.0 H. (a) What induced emf opposes shutting it off when 100 A of current through it is switched off in 80.0 ms? (b) How much energy is stored in the inductor at full current? (c) At what rate in watts must energy be dissipated to switch the current off in 80.0 ms?

(c) 1.56 MW
(d) No, it is not surprising since this power is very high.

(a) What is their total self-inductance assuming they act like a single solenoid? (b) How much energy is stored in them when 6.00 A flows? (c) What average emf opposes shutting them off if this is done in 5.00 ms (one-fourth of a cycle for 50 Hz AC)?
When the 20.0 A current through an inductor is turned off in 1.50 ms, an 800 V emf is induced, opposing the change. What is the value of the self-inductance?

Integrated Concepts
A very large, superconducting solenoid such as one used in MRI scans, stores 1.00 MJ of energy in its magnetic field when 100 A flows. (a) Find its self-inductance. (b) If the coils “go normal,” they gain resistance and start to dissipate thermal energy.
