This paper shows that the potential energy set up by the Amp?re force between current elements is the mechanism for energy storage in inductors. The use of Amp?re's Law , without reference to a 'magnetic field', explains energy storage in the simple inductors experimented tested and reported upon in this paper. The paper shows how to develop a computer model for a one-turn inductor and calculate the energy stored in the inductor.
