40.0 henries
what physical property is similar to inductance?
the difference in potential across a resistor, created by an current through the resistor is an example of which force?
when a magnetic field moves through a stationary conductor the elecotrons in orbit are affected in what manner
they are dislodged from orbit
self-enduced EMF is also known as what force?
counter electromotive force
according to Lenz law, the induced EMF produced by a change in current in an inducteive circuit tends to have what affect on current?
it opposes eihter a rise or fall in current.
the direction of induced voltage in an inductor may be found by the application of which rule?

left hand rule of generators states that the thumb points in the direction of what?
when the voltage is removed from a current carrying conductor a volage wil be induced by what?
the collasping magnetic field.
how are conductors classified by?
core type
normally most coils have cores composed of either air or?
soft iron.
when the number fo turns is increased from 2 to 4 the total inductance will increase by a foactor of
if the radius of a coil is doubled the inductance is increased by a factor of what?
what is the folrmula for copper loss
inductors experience copper loss for what reason?
