# Why inductance is called electrical inertia?

## 1 Answer

### Answer :

The size of the induced electromotive force is proportional to the rate of change of theelectric current. ... The self-inductance of a coil, or simply its inductance, may thus be thought of as electromagnetic inertia, a property that opposes changes both in currents and in magnetic fields.
