Unit cH
Name centihenry
Category Inductance
Details A centihenry (cH) is a unit of inductance in the International System of Units (SI). In the field of electronics and electromagnetism, inductance is the property of an electrical conductor that opposes the change in electric current passing through it. It is represented by the symbol 'L' and is typically measured in henries (H), which is the standard SI unit for inductance.

However, for smaller inductances, it can be more convenient to use submultiples like the centihenry. A centihenry (cH) is equal to 1/100th of a henry, which means that one centihenry is equal to 0.01 henry (1 cH = 0.01 H). This unit is commonly used in electronics, particularly in applications that involve small inductors such as transformers, coils, and other electronic components that exhibit inductive properties.
