It has been proposed to use large inductors as energy storage devices.

How much electrical energy is converted to light and thermal energy by a light bulb with a power of 195 W in one day?

If the amount of energy calculated in part (a) is stored in an inductor in which the current is 85.0 A, what is the inductance?

  • physics -

    energy= 195*secondsinaDay.

    Energy= 1/2 L (85)^2

    solve for L
