## What Is a Henry?

A henry is a unit used to measure electrical inductance.

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H; for example, 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[1]

### Background and Origin

The henry is named after the physicist who discovered electromagnetic induction, Joseph Henry.

## How Much Is a Henry?

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[2]

## How to Convert Henries

To convert henries to another unit of electrical inductance, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[3]

You can find the conversion factors for henries in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the electrical inductance measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

henries × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
