(Latin: to lead, leading; bringing; to take; to draw along or out)

induced drag
An aerodynamic resistive force that is produced as a consequence of the generation of lift.

Its magnitude is directly proportional to the lift.

induced electricity
Electricity which is generated in a body from another body nearby without contact between them.
induced innovation
The theory that the direction and magnitude of innovative activity is shaped by market forces; such as, prices or supply levels; for example, higher oil prices that lead appliance manufacturers to produce more energy-efficient refrigerators or air conditioners.
1. Something that helps to bring about an action or a desired result; an incentive, stimulus, or reason: "The tax breaks were intended as an inducement to greater reinvestment."
2. The act or process of inducing: "The music was an inducement to sleep."
3. In law, an introductory or background statement explaining the main allegations in a proceeding.
4. Factual matter presented by way of an introduction or background to explain the principal allegations of a legal cause (as with slander or libel).
1. Something that induces, especially a substance that is capable of activating a transcription from specific genes within a cell.
2. A part or structure in an embryo that influences the differentiation of another part.
1. Capable of being induced, caused, or made to take place.
2. Obtainable by induction; derivable; inferable.
1. The property of an electric circuit by which an electromotive force is induced in it as the result of a changing magnetic flux.
2. A circuit element, typically a conducting coil, in which electromotive force is generated by electromagnetic induction.
3. That property of a circuit or device by virtue of which any variation in the current flowing through it induces an electromotive force in the circuit itself (self-inductance) or in another conductor (mutual inductance). Without qualification, it is usually the former.

Also, the magnitude of this, as measured by the ratio of an induced electromotive force to the rate of change of the inducing current.

1. Having been introduced formally or placed in an office, position, etc.
2. In the United States, recruited into a military organization.
Someone who has been inducted (lead) into a military service.
Rendered electro-polar by induction, or brought into the opposite electrical state by the influence of inductive bodies.
1. A ceremony or formal act by which a person is inducted, as into office or military service; such as, the registration and induction of military draftees.
2. With electricity, the generation of electromotive force in a closed circuit by a varying magnetic flux through the circuit.
3. In logic, the process of deriving general principles from particular facts or instances; a conclusion reached by this process.
4. The act or process of inducing or making something happen; such as, in medicine, the inducing of birth labor, whereby labor is initiated artificially with drugs such as oxytocin.
5. Presentation of material; such as, facts or evidence in support of an argument or proposition.
6. In electricity, the generation of voltages, currents, electric fields, or magnetic fields by interactions among these quantities without direct contact.
induction salinometer
An instrument that detects the voltage of currents in seawater and is able to indicate the salinity of the water.
1. Involving, operating by, or caused by electric or magnetic induction.
2. Relating to the process of inducing a feeling, idea, or state.
3. Generalizing to produce a universal claim or principle from observed instances.
4. Using particular examples to reach a general conclusion about something: "He used inductive reasoning to come to his decision about accepting the new job."
5. Inductive interactions; such as, an established relationship between tissues manifested by the necessity for the action or presence of one tissue for the development of another tissue.
inductive coupling
A method of transmitting data between tags and readers in which the antenna from the reader picks up changes in the tag’s antenna.
A reference to the process of discovering a general principle from a set of facts by induction or inference.
