Homework Help: Self inductance of a solonoidal coil

  1. Jan 13, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A long, solonoidal coil with 2000 turns produces a B field pf 3mT at its center when a current of 1A flows through the coil. If the cross sectional area of the coil is: 2*10^-3 m^-2, and the field is uniform throghout the solonoid, determine the self inductance of the oil.

    A small coil, C, is now plaed in the middle of the solonoid as such that the axis of the coils concide. The coil C has 10 turns, and a cross setional area of 4*10^-5m^2. Calculate the mutual inuctance between C and the solenoid.

    2. Relevant equations

    emf=-Nd(flux demnsity)/dt

    L=flux density/current

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Dont really have many ideas about this question. I cannot work out how I am going to be able to use the data given as I do not know the emf?

    On a second though to I have to use the formula:


    If I do why am I given the area?
