Today after work I looked up several things after taking apart a few items in order to salvage components (as always please pardon my ignorance) and noticed that transformers and inductors seem similar in a way, despite the fact that they seem to do differing things. What makes the difference in relation to Faraday's law they both seem to follow? The secondary winding on the transformer as opposed to the singular winding on the inductor? Or is there more to it than my basic observation? What if I put a secondary winding on an inductor? Would it become sort of a transformer? Please be patient in the midst of my curiosity and ignorance but I really want to learn!
