- the property of an electric circuit by which a varying current in it produces a varying magnetic field that induces voltages in the same circuit or in a nearby circuit: it is measured in henrys: symbol, L
- the capacity of an electric circuit for producing a counter electromotive force when the current changes
Origin of inductanceinduct + -ance
- The property of an electric circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it as the result of a changing magnetic flux.
- A circuit element, typically a conducting coil, in which electromotive force is generated by electromagnetic induction.
(countable and uncountable, plural inductances)
- The property of an electric circuit by which a voltage is induced in it by a changing magnetic field.
- The power cable itself has enough inductance to disrupt the digital signal of the video output cable, due to poor shielding.
- The quantity of the resulting electromagnetic flux divided by the current that produces it, measured in henries (SI symbol: H.)
- What is the inductance of that power supply's main inductor?
