Induce or evoke in a distant object an opposite or reciprocal state.

Inductance is the property of an electrical circuit causing voltage to be generated proportional to the rate of change in current in a circuit. This property also is called self inductance to discriminate it from mutual inductance, describing the voltage induced in one electrical circuit by the rate of change of the electric current in another circuit. wikipedia, inductance (external link)

Inductance also occurs in acoustics where a sound source evokes or induces a response in a second object via sympathetic vibration or sympathetic oscillation. This evoked or induced response manifests as resonance or co-resonance?.
