# Inductance

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:

\(\large{ L }\) = 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 | \(\large{ft^2}\) | \(\large{m^2}\) |
