Maxwell’s inductance bridge

The four arms of Maxwell’s inductance bridge are; Arm AB contains an Inductive coil of inductance L1 having resistance R1. Arms BC and CD contain non-inductive resistances of 200Ω and 100Ω respectively. Arm AD contains standard inductor of inductance L2 and resistance R2. Balance is obtained when L2=50mH and R2=2Ω. Find L1, R1 and Q factor for f= 50 Hz.

Correct answer:

L1 =  0.1 H
R1 =  4
Q =  7.854
