    Hi,

    here You have written on the top that more number of coils in an inductor than more is its inductance. but after that You have written more is the length of the coil less is the inductance.

    Isn't the coil length proportional to number of turns?
    Can someone please elaborate it?

    Thanks

    Can you post the link where you found it?

    I think the book says the space between each winding of the coil, and thus the length of the coil and not the length of the wire itself.

    mik3,

    See this formula in Reference Volume 5.

    Dave,
    Jrap,

    Upon comparing the above page to the copy at ibiblio, I find that the text in equations.sml http://www.openbookproject.net//electricCircuits/Ref/REF_1.html#xtocid85389 and http://www.openbookproject.net//electricCircuits/Ref/REF_1.html#xtocid853810 has been updated. Moreover, images 10232.png 10233.png 10238.png 10239.png 10241.png for the updated text were missing from ibiblio. I have uploaded those images.
