The unit of inductance in the centimeter-gram-second electrostatic system of units. One stathenry is the self-inductance of a circuit or the mutual inductance between two circuits if there is an induced electromotive force of 1 statvolt when the current is changing at a rate of 1 statampere per second, approximately 8.9876 × 10ยนยน henry. Symbol, statH.
