The reciprocal of reactance is permeance. It is the ability of a material to allow the passage of magnetic lines of flux.
Reluctance is _________ to the area of cross section the material.
The formula for reluctance is:
S = l/(µ_{0} µ_{r}*A).
From the formula, we can see that reluctance is inversely proportional to the area of cross section of the material.
When the area of cross section of the material increases, what happens to reluctance?
Reluctance is inversely proportional to the area of cross section of the material hence as area increases, reluctance decreases.
Resistance is the opposition to the flow of charge, similarly reluctance is the opposition to the flow of magnetic flux.
As the magnetic flux density increases, the reluctance _____________
Reluctance is inversely proportional to the magnetic flux density, hence as magnetic flux density increases, reluctance decreases.
The formula for reluctance is:
S = l/µ_{0} µ_{r}*A.
From the formula, we can see that reluctance is directly proportional to the length of the material.
When the length of the material increases, what happens to reluctance?
Reluctance is directly proportional to the length of the material hence as length increases, reluctance also increases.
Reluctance is magnetomotive force per unit flux,
So unit of reluctance = unit of MMF / unit of magnetic flux = A/Wb.
Reluctance is directly proportional to the strength of the magnetic field, hence as the strength of magnetic field increases, the reluctance increases.
Calculate the reluctance when the magnetomotive force is 10A turns and the flux is 5Wb.
We know that:
F = ϕ*S
Substituting the given values from the question:
S = 2A/Wb.
