I've been reading alot on inductance but I still don't fully understand it.

Heres some points somebody told me to remember
Inductance measures the magnetic flux produced per
amount of current present in a circuit element.
I thought inductance measured the amount of EMF induced by the magnetic flux not the measure of flux produced by the initial current.

Let's say I have a circuit with a current of 20 amps which creates a flux of 10 webers. Does that mean the inductance is .5 henrys? L = 10 webers/20 amps.
Is that correct?

inductance is webers per ampere hence inductance shud come to .5 henry as u stated.

the emf induced is dependent on the rate of change of the flux linked with the coil.
