I Excess charge in inductor due to selfinductance

  1. Sep 14, 2017 #1
    How does one calculate an excess charge distribution across 100 mH single layer inductor with 30 Hz voltage at amplitude of 10 V ?

    You probably don't want to do that. The charge distribution will be much too hard to calculate, and will also be rarely used for anything. Generally you want to know the current throught the inductor. You will certainly need the frequency for this.

    I need the charge peek value... Current is simple to calculate... As I understand the dynamic charge distribution is not only on the surface of the wire but also in the volume of copper..

    Looks as if this is one of the unsolved problems in physics or is it?
