## Homework Statement

How much current is needed in a 9.00mH inductor so that the stored energy will be enough to heat 285g of water from 20.0 degrees Celsius to the boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius? Specific heat of water is 4190 J/kg*Celsius.

## Homework Equations

q = cm(change in T)

## The Attempt at a Solution

q = (4190)(0.285g)(100-20) = 95532 J

After this I got stuck, because I have no idea what to do with the inductance value and how to use it to find current. I looked at all the equations that my professor provided us, but I see no equations relating inductance, current, and energy. Any advice on how to begin would be much appreciated.
