Confusion about inner inductance of transmission line

  1. Mar 12, 2015 #1
    I was reading textbook and felt confused about this-- when trying to deal with inner inductance of transmission line, only the fraction (x/r)^2 of total current, which interlock with magnetic lines should be considered. However, isn't the inductance or even flux linkage an intermediate term(correct me if I am wrong) to electromagnetic induction? If it so, why not we directly deal with flux instead of flux linkage, because as Faraday's law, the change rate of magnetic flux equals emf?

    And I really really really want to know the emf is the rate of change of magnetic flux or flux linkage?????
