in·duc·tance

(ĭn-dŭk′təns)
n.
1. The property of an electric circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it as the result of a changing magnetic flux.
2. A circuit element, typically a conducting coil, in which electromotive force is generated by electromagnetic induction.

inductance

(ɪnˈdʌktəns)
n
1. (General Physics) Also called: induction the property of an electric circuit as a result of which an electromotive force is created by a change of current in the same circuit (self-inductance) or in a neighbouring circuit (mutual inductance). It is usually measured in henries. Symbol: L See also self-inductance, mutual inductance
2. (General Physics) another name for inductor
