Inductance is a physical quantity representing the ability of a change in current to induce an electromotive force. It has dimensions of [current]-2[mass][length]2[time]-2.

The idealised circuit element possessing only inductance is called an inductor. Inductance is related to the voltage and the time derivative of current by V = L\dot{I}.
