Unit dH
Name decihenry
Category Inductance
Details A decihenry (dH) is a unit of inductance, which measures the ability of a coil or a conductor to store electrical energy when current is flowing through it. Inductance is a fundamental property of electrical circuits and is used in various applications such as transformers, inductors, and electromagnets.

The unit of inductance in the International System of Units (SI) is the henry (H). However, henry can be a large unit for some applications, so it is common to use smaller sub-units for practical purposes. One such sub-unit is the decihenry.

A decihenry is equal to one-tenth (1/10) of a henry (1 dH = 0.1 H). This means that if an inductor has an inductance of 1 dH, it stores 0.1 henry of energy when current passes through it. Using decihenry as a unit of inductance allows for easier representation of inductor values in circuits where the inductance is smaller than one henry.
