I have an inductor which I am trying to measure the inductance of. I don't have an inductance meter, but it seems to me that it would be possible to calculate the inductance by measuring the current through a series circuit of the inductor, a resistor, and a multimeter, connected to a 120V, 60Hz, mains supply. The DC resistance of the inductor and multimeter can be found using the multimeter. Is there a way to calculate the reactance and the inductance of the inductor using these values? If so, how? A mathematical explanation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
