Results for: inductance



in·duc·tance  (n-dktns)
1. The property of an electric circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it as the result of a changing magnetic flux.
2. A circuit element, typically a conducting coil, in which electromotive force is generated by electromagnetic induction.

inductance [ɪnˈdʌktəns]
1. (Physics / General Physics) Also called induction the property of an electric circuit as a result of which an electromotive force is created by a change of current in the same circuit (see self-inductance) or in a neighbouring circuit (see mutual inductance). It is usually measured in henries. Symbol L
2. (Physics / General Physics) another name for inductor

inductance  (n-dktns)
A measure of the reaction of electrical components (especially coils) to changes in current flow by creating a magnetic field and inducing a voltage. Its unit is the henry.
