Self inductance of a coil

A coil of 500 turns is wound on a wooden ring having a mean diameter of 8 cm and a cross sectional area of 1.5 cm^2. Assuming relative permeability of wood is 1, calculate the self-inductance of the coil and the emf induced in it when the direction of a DC current of 5A flowing in it is reversed in 0.2 sec?
