1Physics A measure or coefficient of mutual induction, usually expressed in henries.

‘That's three different mutual inductances for three coils, and six mutual inductances for four coils.’

‘Though it is certainly not obvious, it can be shown that the mutual inductance is the same for both circuits.’

‘In this formula all dimensions are in inches and the mutual inductance is in microhenrys.’

‘The mutual inductance appears in the circuit equations for both the primary and secondary circuits of the transformer.’

‘Can I approximate the mutual inductance with the coaxial loops model?’

1.1The property of a circuit which permits mutual induction.

‘In turn, the mutual inductance then causes a cross-talk effect, resulting in a data error.’

‘This novel and robust, multi axis, force input sensor is based on the principal of mutual inductance.’

‘More important though, as the field expands and collapses, it generates a counter - electromotive force, by way of mutual inductance within the same coil.’

‘A device specifically designed to produce the effect of mutual inductance between two or more coils is called a transformer.’
