The self-inductance L of a solenoid of length l and area of cross-section A, with a fixed number of turns N increases as

(a) l and A increase.
(b) l decreases and A increases.
(c) l increases and A decreases.
(d) both l and A decrease.

Answers (1)

The answer is the option (b)

The formula for self-inductance of a solenoid is given by:

L=\frac{\left ( \mu_ r \: \mu_0\: n^2 \right )}{I}

So, from the equation, the inductance should increase as l decreases and A increases. As, L is inversely proportional to l and directly proportional to A.
