[Henry]
SI prefix Value Item
10−9 nano- (nH) 1×10−9 H thin film chip inductor 1.6 × 0.8 mm with a typical power rating of 0.1 W. Range 1 — 100 nH.[1]
525×10−9 H one meter cat.5 cable pair.[2]
10−6 micro- (µH) 1×10−6 H one meter of single wire, less for larger diameter.[3]
50×10−6 H coil with 99 turns, 0.635 cm long with a diameter of 0.635 cm.
10−3 milli- (mH) 1×10−3 H coil 2.2 cm long with a diameter of 1.6 cm. with 800 mA capability. Used in kW amplifiers.[4]
100 (H) 1×100 H inductor a few cm long and a few cm in diameter and having many turns of wire on a ferrite core.[5] Higher values than this is common only in audio and power supplies.[6]
8 .. 11×100 H Mains electricity transformer primary at 120 V.[7][8]
103 kilo- (kH) 1.326×103 H 500 kV, 3000 MW power line transformer primary winding.[9]
