- inductance inducing an electromotive force in the same circuit in which the motivating change of current occurs, equal to the number of flux linkages per unit of current.
Origin of self-inductance
First recorded in 1885–90

- the inherent inductance of a circuit, given by the ratio of the electromotive force produced in the circuit by self-induction to the rate of change of current producing it. It is usually expressed in henriesSymbol: L Also called: coefficient of self-induction
