Section summary
 Inductance is the property of a device that tells how effectively it induces an emf in another device.
 Mutual inductance is the effect of two devices in inducing emfs in each other.
 A change in current
$\mathrm{\Delta}{I}_{1}/\mathrm{\Delta}t$ in one induces an emf
${\text{emf}}_{2}$ in the second:
${\text{emf}}_{2}=M\frac{\mathrm{\Delta}{I}_{1}}{\mathrm{\Delta}t}\text{,}$
where
$M$ is defined to be the mutual inductance between the two devices, and the minus sign is due to Lenz’s law.
 Symmetrically, a change in current
$\mathrm{\Delta}{I}_{2}/\mathrm{\Delta}t$ through the second device induces an emf
${\text{emf}}_{1}$ in the first:
${\text{emf}}_{1}=M\frac{\mathrm{\Delta}{I}_{2}}{\mathrm{\Delta}t}\text{,}$
where
$M$ is the same mutual inductance as in the reverse process.
 Current changes in a device induce an emf in the device itself.
 Selfinductance is the effect of the device inducing emf in itself.
 The device is called an inductor, and the emf
induced in it by a change in current through it is
$\text{emf}=L\frac{\mathrm{\Delta}I}{\mathrm{\Delta}t}\text{,}$
where
$L$ is the selfinductance of the inductor, and
$\mathrm{\Delta}I/\mathrm{\Delta}t$ is the rate of change of current through it. The minus sign indicates that emf opposes the change in current, as required by Lenz’s law.
 The unit of self and mutual inductance is the henry (H), where
$\mathrm{1\; H}=1\; \Omega \cdot \text{s}$ .
 The selfinductance
$L$ of an inductor is proportional to how much flux changes with current. For an
$N$ turn inductor,
$L=N\frac{\mathrm{\Delta}\Phi}{\mathrm{\Delta}I}\text{.}$
 The selfinductance of a solenoid is
$L=\frac{{\mu}_{0}{N}^{2}A}{\ell}\text{(solenoid),}$
where
$N$ is its number of turns in the solenoid,
$A$ is its crosssectional area,
$\ell $ is its length, and
${\text{\mu}}_{0}=\mathrm{4\pi}\times {\text{10}}^{\text{\u22127}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{T}\cdot \text{m/A}\phantom{\rule{0.10em}{0ex}}$ is the permeability of free space.
 The energy stored in an inductor
${E}_{\text{ind}}$ is
${E}_{\text{ind}}=\frac{1}{2}{\text{LI}}^{2}\text{.}$
