(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the above circuit, the EMF from the battery is 12 V and the resistor has a resistance is 6.6 Ω. The inductor consists of a long, thin cylindrical coil of wire with 30000 turns, a radius of 5 cm and a length of 61 cm.

Answer the following questions for a time 1.4 seconds after the battery has been connected.

(c) How much energy has been delivered by the battery up to this point?

2. Relevant equations

U = 0.5LI^2

∫Udt from 0 to 1.4s

3. The attempt at a solution

I found the inductance and the current for the 1st two parts of the problem:

(a) What is the inductance of the solenoid? 14.56171141 H

(b) What is the current through the battery? 0.8542201 A

I plugged in the numbers to find the energy: U =0.5*14.56171141*(0.8542201^2) = 10.62556402 J

Then I think that you would have to integrate over time from 0 to 1.4s which gave me a result of 7.4378948 J.

It did not like the answer. Any suggestions?
