In **inductance** is the property of an *self-inductance*. The same property causes a current in one conductor to induce an electromotive force in nearby conductors; this is called **mutual inductance**.^{[1]}

Inductance is an effect caused by the

The term *inductance* was coined by ^{[2]} It is customary to use the symbol for inductance, in honour of the physicist ^{[3]}^{[4]}In the *H*), which is the amount of inductance which causes a voltage of 1 ^{[5]}

Electric circuits which are located close together, so the magnetic field created by the current in one passes through the other, are said to be * inductively coupled*. So a change in current in one circuit will cause the magnetic flux through the other circuit to vary, which will induce a voltage in the other circuit, by Faraday's law. The ratio of the voltage induced in the second circuit to the rate of change of current in the first circuit is called the

The history of electromagnetic induction, a facet of electromagnetism, began with observations of the ancients: electric charge or static electricity (rubbing silk on

Electromagnetic induction was first described by ^{[6]}^{[7]} In Faraday's experiment, he wrapped two wires around opposite sides of an iron ring. He expected that, when current started to flow in one wire, a sort of wave would travel through the ring and cause some electrical effect on the opposite side. Using a ^{[8]} This current was induced by the change in ^{[9]} Faraday found several other manifestations of electromagnetic induction. For example, he saw transient currents when he quickly slid a bar magnet in and out of a coil of wires, and he generated a steady (^{[10]}
