**Q: **Is inductance a property of an electrical conductor which opposes a change in current? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance approximately constant? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance proportional to the square of turns ratio? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Was inductance coined by Oliver Heaviside in 1886? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance the henry? ¶

**A: **Yes, and with the unit symbol H, named in honor of Joseph Henry, who discovered inductance independently of, but not before, Faraday.

**Q: **Is inductance proportional to the square of the number of turns in the coil? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance called an inductor? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance also proportional to how much energy is stored in the magnetic field for a given current? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance used in flux calculations? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance ambiguous and is different whether you are calculating circuit parameters or magnetic fluxes? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is inductance increased beyond the critical coupling? ¶

**A: **Yes, and the peak in the frequency response curve splits into two peaks, and as the coupling is increased the two peaks move further apart.

**Q: **Is inductance a property of a conductor or circuit? ¶

**A: **Yes, and due to its magnetic field, which tends to oppose changes in current through the circuit.

**Q: **Is inductance a function of coil geometry and number of turns? ¶

**A: **Yes, and is independent of current.

**Q: **Are inductances often referred to as "partial inductances" to indicate that they must be used with care? ¶

**A: **Yes.
