Dies in Washington, DC Joseph Henry was born to Scottish immigrants in Albany, New York in the 1799.
Henry noted that tourists who viewed it "all appear to be specially interested in knowing the condition of weather to which their friends at home are subjected at the time." He shared the telegraph dispatches with the Washington Evening Star, which, in May 1857, began publishing daily weather conditions at nearly twenty different cities.
Henry apparently envisioned a system of storm warnings, announcing in his annual report for 1857 that he hoped the following year to arrange with telegraph lines "to give warning on the eastern coast of the approach of storms." But he was not able to implement the plan before the Civil War engulfed the nation.

 Henry (inductance) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This SI unit is named after Joseph Henry.
As for all SI units whose names are derived from the proper name of a person, the first letter of its symbol is uppercase (H).
But when an SI unit is spelled out, it should always be written in lowercase (henry), unless it begins a sentence or is the name "degree Celsius".

 Mandeville Gallery at the Nott Memorial
The discovery of inductance and the development of the modern electromagnet are monumental accomplishments in and of themselves, but they are in fact just one small part of a seemingly endless stream of activities and achievements for which Joseph Henry must be credited.
On the bicentennial of Joseph Henry's birth, this exhibition aims to give him some of the recognition he so rightly deserves as one of the most accomplished scientists of his time.
Henry's scientific device and discovery would soon lead to practical applications, such as a magnetic method for the separation of iron ore, the telegraph, the electric motor, the telephone, the electric generator, the transformer, radio, television, the computer, and magnetic resonance imaging.

 Coils
Self inductance is a measure of a coil's ability to establish an induced voltage as a result of a change in its current.
The value of inductance can also be changed by changing the number of turns of wire that comprise the coil, but in fact it is not possible in any practical way.
To adjust the inductance value of a hollow coil, the spacing between the loops of the coil is changed.

 Inductance
Henry also discovered self inductance and mutual inductance (which will be described later in this section) and invented the electromechanical relay (which was the basis for the telegraph).
Inductance is the resistance of a circuit element to changes in current.
The inductance (L) of a circuit element is defined as the ratio of the induced potential (V) to the rate of change of the current (dI/dt).

The basic unit of inductance is H henry named after the American physicist Joseph Henry.
Inductance in electrical circuits is similar to inertia in mechanical operations.
When inductance are not coupled (far enough apart to not influence each other) and connected in series the total inductance is the sum of the individual inductances.

Henry improved the electromagnet, increasing its strength and fitting it for practical use.
He discovered self-inductance, and the unit of inductance is often called the henry in his honor.
Henry invented a small electromagnetic motor, and extended the work on induced currents to show that an induced current can be used to induce another current in a nearby circuit and that resulting currents in turn can induce others.

 Inductance Measuring Circuit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Other advantages to using a series inductance as a calibration inductance is that the circuit is guaranteed to oscillate for any value of test inductance (Ltest) and that the inaccuracies resulting from finite op-amp slew rate are cancelled out, even if the positive going slew rate differs from the negative going slew rate.
The 220 ohm resistor is necessary to discharge the inductor during reversals in the polarity of the output voltage, otherwise a spike appears in the output voltage causing inaccuracies in the measured value of inductance.
For a desired inductance, l, the designer should calculate the number of turns, N, then wind an inductor with a few more than N turns, and gradually back off the number of turns, by measuring the inductance with the test circuit below until the exact inductance is achieved.

 Inductance
Firstly, the mutual inductance of two loops is a purely geometric quantity, having to do with the sizes, shapes, and relative orientations of the loops.
Inductance is measured in S.I. units called henries (H): 1 henry is 1 volt-second per ampere.
The henry, like the farad, is a rather unwieldy unit, since most real-life inductors have a inductances of order a micro-henry.

 Mutual inductance
is the mutual inductance of circuit 1 with respect to circuit 2.
In other words, the flux linking circuit 2 when a certain current flows around circuit 1 is exactly the same as the flux linking circuit 1 when the same current flows around circuit 2: this is true irrespective of the size, number of turns, relative position, and relative orientation of the two circuits.
The mutual inductances of the circuits typically encountered in laboratory experiments are measured in milli-henries.

 Define henry - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: H
The henry (symbolized H) is the Standard International (SI) unit of inductance.
In a circuit where the current is changing at a constant rate of one ampere per second (A/s), an inductance of 1 H results in the generation of one volt (1 V) of potential difference across an inductor.
The henry is a large unit of inductance.

 Electronics Tips: 7-Henry Inductor
When the inductor was placed in a circuit operating at 210Hz, it exhibited inductance of about 12 Henry and when placed in a circuit operating at 1KHz, it exhibited inductance of about 8 Henry.

While at Princeton, Henry continued his electrical experiments and also studied sound, capillary action and ballistics, even as he lectured in subjects such as chemistry, geology, mineralogy, astronomy and architecture.
In 1844, Henry helped investigate a deadly cannon explosion during a demonstration aboard the new U.S.S. Princeton, the most technologically advanced warship of its time, and his inquiries led him to explore the subject of molecular cohesion.
Henry left Princeton in 1846 to become the first secretary of the recently-created Smithsonian Institution, where his enormous energy and intelligence were channeled into driving forward both the organization and the very course of American science.

 Decoupling
The inductance comes from the capacitor itself (typically 1-2 nH for a SMT capacitor), the interconnecting traces (typically 5 to 20 nH according to the layout), and the lead frame of the IC (typically 4 to 15 nH according to the type of IC package).
For a fixed value of inductance, the effectiveness of the high frequency decoupling network is, therefore, solely dependent on the number of capacitors that you use.
Although the effectiveness of the decoupling at high frequency is dependent on the number of capacitors used (since the inductance is reduced to L/N), the effectiveness of the decoupling at low frequency has nothing to do with the number of capacitors used.

Inductance (henry) is another valuable parameter for the sonic evaluation of a pickup but requires some basic understanding of electrodynamics.
Besides inductance, there are other factors that also need to be considered in projecting tone and output of a pickup.
Tone and output mainly depend on the relation between inductance, magnetic strength and the efficiency of the pickup, as well as the relation between the inductance of the pickup and the capacitance of the cable.
