Total inductance (multiloop circuit)

  1. Feb 17, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Essentially I have a circuit that looks like this:

    Code (Text):
    |      |        |
    L1     |        L3
    |      |        |
    |      |        |
    L2     |        L5
    |      |        |
    L1 = 2
    L2 = 10
    L3 = 4
    L4 = 6
    L5 = 8

    How can one find the total inductance between A and B?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know inductance rules are the same as resistance rules--but if this is so, the total inductance would be zero because there is a direct path from A to B. But something tells me this isn't right.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Much obliged,

    - Steve.
