Description : Why is voltage increases before transmission?

Description : A sine wave voltage is applied across an inductor. When the frequency of the voltage is decreased, the current decreases.

Answer : The question seems to be wrong. Increase in frequency would actually decrease the current through the Inductor. This happens because inductive reactance Xl is directly proportional to frequency. And if frequency increases the value of Xl would ... vice versa. Xl= 2*pi*f*L I=E/Z Z=sqrt(R^2+Xl^2)
