mutual induction



  • The property of a circuit in which a varying current induces an emf in a neighboring circuit. Its symbol is M, and when quantifying this inductance some multiple of henrys, such as millihenrys or microhenrys, is used. When the emf is induced in the same circuit it is called self-induction. Also called mutual inductance (2).
