\(\large{ L }\) = inductance | \(\large{H}\) | \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^2-A^2}}\) |

\(\large{ A }\) = area encircled by the coil | \(\large{in^2}\) | \(\large{mm^2}\) |

\(\large{ l }\) = length of the coil | \(\large{in}\) | \(\large{mm}\) |

\(\large{ n }\) = number of turns of the coil | \(\large{dimensionless}\) | |

\(\large{\mu }\) (Greek symbol mu) = permeability | \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) | \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\) |
