Consider two solenoids, an often familiar formula for the induced emf from 1 solonoid in the 2nd solenoid is . My question is.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Doesn't this only account for the emf induced in solenoid # 2 from solenoid #1, and not the emf induced in solenoid #2 from solenoid #2's own self inductance.

The total flux in 2 should be the sum of contributions from coils in #1 and coils in #2. This emf produced from mutual inductance seems to only account from flux contribution from coils in #1, and the total emf must include another term?

Here is the formula url if it doesnt show above
