Answer to Question #26047 in Electric Circuits for sikhanibloch
what is the difference b/w an inductor and a solenoid?
Inductor - a coil of wire, which have significantinductance at a relatively small capacity and low active resistance. Solenoid - is a coil wound into a tightly packed helix.Refers specifically to a long, thin loop of wire, often wrapped around a metallic core, which produces a uniform magnetic field in a volume of space when an electric current is passed through it. So, inductors - a large class of electrical devices.Solenoid is specific electrical device, that refers to inductors
