Mutual Inductance of a Double Solenoid

Learning Goal:

To learn about mutual inductance from an example of a long solenoid with two windings.To illustrate the calculation of mutual inductance it is helpful to consider the specific example of two solenoidsthat are wound on a common cylinder. We will take the cylinder to have radius and length . Assume that thesolenoid is much longer than its radius, so that its field can be determined from Ampère's law throughout its entirelength: .We will consider the field that arises from solenoid 1, which has turns per unit length. The magnetic field due tosolenoid 1 passes (entirely, in this case) through solenoid 2, which has turns per unit length. Any change inmagnetic flux from the field generated by solenoid 1 induces an EMF in solenoid 2 through Faraday's law of induction, .

Part A

Consider first the generation of the magnetic field by the current in solenoid 1. Within the solenoid(sufficiently far from its ends), what is the magnitude of the magnetic field due to this current?Express in terms of , variables given in the introduction, and relevant constants.

ANSWER:

=CorrectNote that this field is independent of the radial position (the distance from the symmetry axis) for points insidethe solenoid.

Part B

What is the flux generated by solenoid 1's magnetic field through a single turn of solenoid 2?

Hint B.1 The definition of flux

Hint not displayed

Express in terms of , quantities given in the introduction, and any needed constants.

ANSWER:

=Correct

Part C

Now find the electromotive force induced across the entirety of solenoid 2 by the change in current insolenoid 1.

Hint C.1Find the flux from

Hint not displayed

Hint C.2 The EMF for the entire solenoid

Hint not displayed

Hint C.3 Putting it together

Hint not displayed

Express your answer in terms of , , , other parameters given in the introduction, and any relevantconstants.

ANSWER:

=Correct

Part D

This overall interaction is summarized using the symbol to indicate the

mutual inductance

between the twowindings. Based on your previous two answers, which of the following formulas do you think is the correct one?

ANSWER:

CorrectMutual inductance indicates that a change in the current in solenoid 1 induces an electromotive force (EMF) insolenoid 2. When the double solenoid is thought of as a circuit element, this electromotive force is added intoKirchhoff's loop law. The constant of proportionality is the mutual inductance, denoted by . The negative signin the equation comes from the negative sign in Faraday's law, and reflects Lenz's rule: Thechanging magnetic field due to solenoid 1 will induce a current in solenoid 2; this induced current will itself generate a magnetic field within solenoid 2, such that changes in the induced magnetic field oppose the changesin the magnetic field from solenoid 1.

Part E

Using the formula for the mutual inductance, , find .Express the mutual inductance in terms of , , quantities given in the introduction, and relevant physicalconstants.

ANSWER:

=

Correct

Part F

Not surprisingly, if a current is sent through solenoid 2, it induces a voltage in solenoid 1. The mutual inductancein this case is denoted by , the mutual inductance for voltage induced in solenoid 1 from current in solenoid 2.What is ?

Hint F.1 A new symmetry

Hint not displayed

Express the mutual inductance in terms of , , quantities given in the introduction, and relevant physicalconstants.

ANSWER:

=CorrectThis result that is equal to reflects the interchangeability of the two coils and applies even if the coils areonly partially coupled (for example, if one coil is wound on a much larger cylinder or if only a fraction of thelarger coil's flux is intercepted by the smaller coil). Because of this fact, the subscripts are generally omitted:There is only one mutual inductance between two coils, denoted by : An EMF is generated in one coil by achange in current in the other coil.

Self-Inductance of a Solenoid

Learning Goal:

To learn about self-inductance from the example of a long solenoid.To explain self-inductance, it is helpful to consider the specific example of a long solenoid, as shown in the figure.This solenoid has only one winding, and so the EMF induced by its changing current appears across the solenoiditself. This contrasts with mutual inductance, where this voltage appears across a second coil wound on the samecylinder as the first.Assume that the solenoid has radius , length along the

z

axis, and is wound with turns per unit length so thatthe total number of turns is equal to . Assume that the solenoid is much longer than its radius.As the current through the solenoid changes, the resulting magnetic flux through the solenoid will also change, andan electromotive force will be generated across the solenoid according to Faraday's law of induction:.Faraday's law implies the following relation between the self-induced EMF across the solenoid and the currentpassing through it: .
