1The property of an electric conductor or circuit that causes an electromotive force to be generated by a change in the current flowing.
‘the inductance of the winding’
count noun‘an inductance of 40 mH’
‘Currents in resistance / inductance circuits always decay exponentially, not linearly, after the power source is switched off.’
‘Reactance, however, is a measure of the type of opposition to AC electricity due to capacitance or inductance.’
‘Electronically tuned matching networks using adjustable inductance elements and resonant tank circuits’
‘The capacitance and inductance defines the resonant frequency.’
‘If current is decreasing, inductance will cause the current to decrease more slowly.’
1.1count nounA component with the property of inductance.
‘Lets take an electrical circuit, with two AC sources of the same frequency, acting on a purely reactive circuit (one that is made of capacitors and/or inductances only).’
