In an inductive transducer, pressure-induced displacements of a diaphragm cause a change in the self-inductance of a single coil.
The inductance of the wire is called self-inductance.
British Dictionary definitions for self-inductance
the inherent inductance of a circuit, given by the ratio of the electromotive force produced in the circuit by self-induction to the rate of change of current producing it. It is usually expressed in henries LAlso called coefficient of self-induction
