The inductance of a coil is very much higher if it has an iron core.
Four times the inductance will tune to double these wave-lengths.
But what would happen if we should decrease the capacity and increase the inductance?
The first is that the inductance will be larger if the turns are large circles.
Suppose you wind two inductance coils and connect them in series.
- 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 (self-inductance) or in a neighbouring circuit (mutual inductance). It is usually measured in henriesSymbol: L See also self-inductance, mutual inductance
