A coil is a series of loops. A coil made of rigid materials can be fashioned in a spiral or helical shape; see spiral staircase[?]. Flexible materials like wire, rope, hose, or cable can also be coiled into empty loops, or wound around a central drum or spindle[?].

An induction coil is formed when a metal wire is coiled around a core to create an electronic inductor.
