    Joseph Henry Whom we named the SI unit for inductance after.
    Similar to 1 (Michael Faraday) for whom the SI unit for capacitance is named.

    Doods who have derived SI designators?

    Joseph Henry independently discovered electromagnetic self-induction in 1831, however the credit goes to Michael Faraday for being first.


  6. Mo

    Michael Faraday is generally credited with the discovery of induction in 1831 though it may have been anticipated by the work of Francesco Zantedeschi in 1829
