The self-inductance of a coil is defined as the ratio of self-induced emf to the rate of change of current in the coil.
The unit used for self-inductance of a coil is Henry.
Self-inductance is defined as the property exhibited by the coil due to which it opposes the change of current flowing through it.
Following are the facts about self-inductance:
- If the magnetic flux is stronger for the given current value, then the inductance value will be high.
- 1 Henry is equal to 1 Weber per ampere.
- Inductance depends on the material used in the core and the number of turns in the solenoid.
