Energy in a Series RL Circuit#

A coil with a self-inductance of \({{ params.L }}\rm\ H\) and a resistance of \({{ params.R }}\rm\ \Omega\) carries a steady current of \({{ params.I }}\rm\ A\).

Part 1#

What is the energy stored in the magnetic field of the coil?

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(\rm\ J\).

Part 2#

What is the energy per second dissipated in the resistance of the coil?

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(\rm\ W\).
