A constant current I exists in a solenoid whose inductance is L. The current is then reduced to zero in a certain amount of time. (a) If the wire from which the solenoid is made has no resistance, is there a voltage across the solenoid during the time when the current is constant? (b) If the wire from which the solenoid is made has no resistance, is there an emf across the solenoid during the time that the current is being reduced to zero? (c) Does the solenoid store electrical energy when the current is constant? If so, express this energy in terms of the current and the inductance. (d) When the current is reduced from its constant value to zero, what is the rate at which energy is removed from the solenoid? Express your answer in terms of the initial current, the inductance, and the time during which the current goes to zero. A solenoid has an inductance of L = 3.1 H and carries a current of = 15 A. (a) If the current goes from 15 to 0 A in a time of 75 ms, what is the emf induced in the solenoid? (b) How much electrical energy is stored in the solenoid? (c) At what rate must the electrical energy be removed from the solenoid when the current is reduced to zero in 75 ms?
