Mutual Inductance

  1. Feb 15, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have a shape that is basically a rectangle but one side increase in height(shape length is L and it increases height at L/2). Which leaves me with two squares of different heights. Can I find the mutual inductance of each square and then add them up to find the inductance of the entire shape?
    2. Relevant equations
    It's just a question.
    3. The attempt at a solution
    Trying to get a better understanding on how to start the problem

    Could you draw the shapes and upload it here? Maybe you can use paint or you can draw it on paper and upload its image.

    Finding the inductance of single-turn loops or coils is extremely difficult, is always an approximation, depends on the wire diameter as well as loop dimensions, and is well beyond the scope of even an undergraduate course in electromagnetics.
