  Henry  \Hen"ry\,  n.;  pl  {Henrys}.  [From  Joseph  Henry,  an 
  American  physicist.] 
  The  unit  of  electric  induction;  the  induction  in  a  circuit 
  when  the  electro-motive  force  induced  in  this  circuit  is  one 
  volt,  while  the  inducing  current  varies  at  the  rate  of  one 
  amp[`e]re  a  second

  henry 
  n  1:  a  unit  of  inductance  in  which  an  induced  electromotive  force 
  of  one  volt  is  produced  when  the  current  is  varied  at 
  the  rate  of  one  ampere  per  second  [syn:  {H}] 
  2:  (1791-1878)  American  physicist  who  studied  electromagnetic

  henry 
 
    H  The  {SI}  unit  of  inductance:  one  henry  is  the 
  inductance  of  a  closed  loop  in  which  the  induced  voltage  is 
  one  volt  if  the  current  flowing  through  it  changes  by  one 
  ampere  each  second  i.e.,  1  H  =  1  Vs/A.  Named  after  the 
  American  physicist  Joseph  Henry  (1797-1878).
