Solution 1

The ratio of magnetic flux passing through one coil to the current passing through the other is known as mutual inductance between the two coils.

Solution 2

Mutual inductance is the property of two coils by the virtue of which each opposes any change in the value of current flowing through the other by developing an induced emf.

The SI unit of mutual inductance is henry and its symbol is H.

Solution 3

Mutual inductance is where the magnetic field generated by a coil of wire induces a voltage in an adjacent coil of wire. A transformer is a device constructed of two or more coils in close proximity to each other, with the express purpose of creating a condition of mutual inductance between the coils.

It's SI unit is : Wb/A
