## what is inductor?

Do you know what is inductor? Inductor are electronic components made of wire windings that form a coil

The type of inductor consists of various kinds of them are air core inductor, iron core inductor, ferrite core inductor, and variable inductor

In this article the admin will explain about the definition and function of the inductor along with its types as well as examples of the use of inductors in the series of electronics

## The function of the inductor and its types

the inductor has the opposite properties with the capacitor. Inductor has blocking AC current and continuing DC current

While the capacitor has the properties of continuing the AC current and blocking the DC current. The inductance value of the inductor is expressed in units of Henry

￼the physical of inductor as follow

In the circuit the inductor electronics are symbolized like the following figure

￼

The inductance value of the inductor is influenced by the following factors

### number of turns

The inductance value of the inductor is directly proportional to the number of turns. The more the number of windings the higher the inductance value of an inductor

### The diameter of the inductor

The larger the diameter of an inductor the greater the value of the inductance and vice versa of the inductor

### The inductor core

The inductor core also affects the inductance value of the iron-core induced sample, or the ferrite has a higher inductance value than air core

### The longer of inductor

The longer the inductor the smaller the inductance and vice versa

An example of using an inductor

The use of inductors also consists of various Examples of the use of ferrite core inductor can my friend meet on PC power supply, crossover circuit and so forth

Fermented iron or ferrite inductors are commonly used in circuits related to low frequencies or sound frequencies

￼

Parent variable is inductor whose inductance value can be changed. To change the value can be done by rotating the inductor core by using a screwdriver

Examples of the use of this type of inductor can be met in high frequency-related circuits such as on boster TV, radio, transmitter and more

Inductor variables can also be made by wrapping a wire on a cocker
