Inductance

August 24th Fact-of-the-Day

The practical unit of inductance is the henry. However, the inductance of most inductors is expressed in millihenrys or microhenrys, because a henry is such a large unit. It is important to know that inductance has the dimension of length. If the shape of an inductance is kept constant, all inductance formulas state that inductance is proportional to a linear dimension and to the square of the number of turns. ©2004 Martek International All rights reserved.
