Okay, So energy is given by 1/2 times induct inst times. Kurt Squared. Therefore induct Ince's equal to two times energy over I square. Um, energy. Really have where given is point through, Millie. Jewel. Some 0.0.3 times. 10 to the negative. Three. Jos current is two amps. So that's two are I should say, 1.7 amps, 1.7 amps squared. This gives you an inductive nce off 2.8 times 10 to the negative for Henry or about point to Millie. Henry, that was part of it. And for part B. Um, same equation. This time we're finding energy. So it's 1/2 ally squared. Uh, l we just found to be 2.8 times 10 to the negative for Henry. Um, And I this time is three amps square that you get, uh, 0.94 No, Jules. And that's it.
