**consider two conducting loops with fixed geometries and at fixed positions. Let I1 and I2 be the currents flowing in the loops 1 and 2.**

**how does Faraday's Law allow the currents I1 and I2 to affect each other?**

farday's law says that changing the flux between loops 1 will induce an emf in loop 2. where there are 2 loops at rest, a steady current I around loop 1 will produce a magnetic field B, where some of the field lines will pass through loop 2.

but does Faraday say anything without changing the flux?

**Write down a set of two equations for the currents I1(t) and I1(t) in terms of the various induction coefficients.**

induction coefficients might be the biggest problem here... if self inductance is Lii then coefficients of inductance are Lij. what exactly is the difference?

**under which conditions on the coefficients can the currents I1 and I2 oscillate?**

i am totally lost on this one. maybe if the coefficients are opposite? no clue!
