inductive spike

Back EMF is the same as Counter EMF and in either case, including Forward EMF, none of these are the inductive spike from a coil.

If he is saying in the book that forward emf is the inductive spike then he is misusing the entire concept of force as in electromotive force. Is there force with zero work or pure potential moving through a coil and out of it? It might sound good but is is like an oxymoron...kind of like "military intelligence."

I have the same book from a friend it is a great reference nevertheless.
