Inductance

The process of storing electrical energy in magnetic fields. An inductor is any element in an electrical circuit having a magnetic field, though usually by design these elements are coils and transformers. When inductance and frequency are considered together, a value of inductive reactance, measured in Ohms, is formed. This reactance looks like resistance to current flow for a signal of a given frequency. Inductive reactance and capacitive reactance together form reactive impedance.
