Inductance of Straight Wire & Electrode Calculator

**Calculate Inductance of Straight Wire or Electrode **** **

Note: Formulas and equations for this calculator is given below ( after calculator). Also do not forget to share with and suggest to your friends. Also, if you want to see other electrical and electronics calculators live on our blog, then please mention it in our below comment box. thanks.

**Enter the required values of length of wire and diameter of wire in inches and click on calculate. Result will display the value of Inductance in µH.**

**Good to know***

L = K x a x [ { ln (2*l */ a) } – 0.75] Where;

**L** = Inductance in **µH**

**K** = 0.00508 (dims in inchs)

= 0.0002 (dims in mm)

**a ** = wire radius (inches or mm)

** l **= wire length (inches or mm)

**ln**= Natural Logarithm

= 2.303 * Common Log [base 10]

**Also;**

**L**= 0.00508xbx (log (2xb/ (w+h)) +.5+0.2235x (w+h)/b)

**And;**

**L**= 0.00508xbx (log (2xb/a)-0.75)

Where;

**L**= Inductance in

**µH**

**b**= wire length

**a**= wire diameter

This is calculation is based on assuming the electrode or straight wire in Free Space.

Your calculation does not take into account the resistivity of the wire material, aluminium, copper, silver, etc. which will also have an effect on the inductance value.
