Voltage across an inductor at any moment in time can be calculated as the inductance multiplied by the rate of change of current.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How is this equation derived?

I'm pretty sure it comes from Faraday law

-emf = rate of change of magnetic flux

but I cannot find the relationship.

Thanks!
