LOVE YOUR CALULATOR……NOT SURE WHEN I NEED TO USE IT….I AM A HAM VIRGIN….BUT LEARNING…..

THANKS A BUNCH

Re: Air Cored Inductor Calculator

Hi, Is the coil diameter measured outside, at the middle or inside of the coil ?

Hi.

I never use thick enough wire to worry, but I would use the inside diameter.

73, John.

The coil diameter uses the mean diameter of the copper coil.

A 1mm wire wound on a 14mm bobbin will have a mean diameter a bit over 15mm.

The bit over is the uncoiling that naturally occurs when one releases the tensioning force.

I use >=1.6mm diameter enameled copper wire and prefer to use 2.12mm wire wound onto an AA battery.

My mean diameter is roughly 16.9mm

9¾ Turns gives ~1uH

Is it possible to add a field for the copper wire diameter?

And use that to calculate the coil resistance in ohms?

Perhaps that would be better as a separate calculator.

What is the meaning of Coil Diameter and Coil length?

Diameter is how wide the coil is and length is how long the coil is.

hi tanx for you helping amateur radio in all of the world

i used of air core calculator.

A good approximate formula (accurate enough to 1%) is:

L = (n . d)(n . d)/l x 10^{-10) Henrys , where n is number of turns, d is diameter in mm, l is length in cms,

I love the idea that you have Pi to 50 digits. But. It is false precision in the wire length because the length depends on the Turns Per Inch as well. The true length of the line is the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle formed from the true circumference and the turn spacing. It is an error larger than the diameter of an electron, but I think I can live with your formula! ;-))

Very good Bennett! 🙂
