## mutual inductance

n. Abbr. M
The principle that a change of current in one circuit can induce electromotive force in a neighboring circuit, equal to the ratio of the electromotive force in a circuit to the corresponding change of current in a neighboring circuit.

## mutual inductance

n
(General Physics) a measure of the mutual induction between two magnetically linked circuits, given as the ratio of the induced electromotive force to the rate of change of current producing it. It is usually measured in henries. Symbol: M or L12 Also called: coefficient of mutual induction

Although the specific-winding method was quite successful in suppressing the crosstalk caused by the mutual inductance, this method makes the inductance of sensor coils decreased heavily, which in return shortens the readout distance.
