Inductance

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical Engineering

Inductance, abbreviated as L, is the measure of an electric conductor or circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it.

 

Inductance FORMULA

\(\large{ L =  \mu \; n^2 \; \frac{A}{l}  }\)   

Where:

Units  English Metric
\(\large{ L }\) = inductance \(\large{H}\) \(\large{H}\)
\(\large{ A }\) = area encircled by the coil \(\large{in^2}\) \(\large{mm^2}\)
\(\large{ l }\) = length of the coil \(\large{in}\) \(\large{m}\) 
\(\large{ n }\) = number of turns of the coil \(\large{dimensionless}\)
\(\large{mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = permeability \(\large{ft^2}\) \(\large{m^2}\)
