## Voltage across Inductance Calculator

Voltage across inductance calculator is used to find the voltage drop of the inductor in an electrical circuit.

## What is the voltage across an inductance?

If current flows through an inductor it generates a magnetic field around the inductor. Changes in the rate of current with the passage of time generate a voltage across the inductor.

According to Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction in a change of magnetic field through a closed loop of wire induces a voltage in the wire. In the inductor, the induced voltage opposes any changes in the current flowing through it.

## Formula of voltage:

V = (L × I)/T

Where,

• V = total voltage across the inductor
• L = inductance of the inductor
• I = rate of change of current
• T= time of the changing current

## How to evaluate the voltage across the inductor:

Example 1:

An inductor working in a DC Circuit with an inductance of 2, a rate of change of current is 20 in 2 seconds then find the voltage across the inductor.

Solution:

Step 1:

Write the data from the above question.

Inductance = L = 2, rate of current = I = 20, Time = T = 2, V=?

Step 2:

Write the formula to calculate the voltage across the inductor.

V = (L × I)/T

Step 3:

Apply the values in the above formula.

L = 2, I = 20, T = 2

V = (L × I)/T

V = (2 × 20)/2

V = (40)/2

V = 20 volt

Therefore, the voltage across the inductor is 20 volts.

Example 2:

An inductor working in an AC Circuit with an inductance of 6, a rate of change of current is 25 in 5 seconds then find the voltage across the inductor.

Solution:

Step 1:

Write the data from the above question.

Inductance = L = 6, rate of current = I = 25, Time = T = 5, V=?

Step 2:

Write the formula to calculate the voltage across the inductor.

V = (L × I)/T

Step 3:

Apply the values in the above formula.

L = 6, I = 25, T = 5

V = (L × I)/T

V = (6 × 25)/5

V = (150)/5

V = 30 volts

Therefore, the voltage across the inductor is 30 volts.
