Self-Inductance Calculator

The Self-Inductance Calculator will calculate the:

  1. Self-inductance of a solenoid (inductor) as an intrinsic property of the inductor itself

Computation considerations: Magnetic field and medium are considered as uniform; the conducting bar is uniform and it has the same thickness everywhere, the bar is moving at constant velocity inside the magnetic field.
