n.
The ratio of the electromotive force produced in a circuit by self-induction to the rate of change of current producing it, expressed in henries. Also called coefficient of self-induction.

## self-inductance

n
(General Physics) 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 henries. Symbol: L Also called: coefficient of self-induction
