(a) A long solenoid consists of N turns of wire, has length l, and cross-sectional area A.
Show that the self-inductance can be written as

2

0

/

L N A l

µ

=

. Note that L increases as

N2, and has dimensions of 0

µtimes a length (as must always be true).

(b) A solenoid has a length of 126 cm and a diameter of 5.45 cm, with 1870 windings.
What is its inductance if its interior is vacuum?

(c) If we now fill the interior with iron with an effective permeability constant κm = 968,
what is its inductance?

49

(d) Suppose we connect this iron core inductor up in series with a battery and resistor,
and that the total resistance in the circuit, including that of the battery and inductor, is
. How long does it take after the circuit is established for the current to reach 50%
of its final value? [Ans: (b) 8.1 mH; (c) 7.88 H; (d) 0.55 s].

10 Ω
