I see both your formulas have f and C in your equations. I must admit I do not understand the question you are asking. There is a formula for a wound air coil of Length L and diameter d with a winding density factor. There is a formula for an inductor wound on a ferrite core, but the permiability of the core would be needed. The resonant frequency, \(F_o=\frac{1}{2 \pi sqrt{L C}}\) Please be more verbose with your question, explaining what you do know, and what you'd like to figure out. First, keep in mind: \(\omega=2\pi F\) and \(F=\frac{\omega}{2\pi}\) --ETA: Your Post #3 states you want to solve \(F_o=\frac{1}{2 \pi sqrt{L C}\) The equation is derived from: \(\omega=sqrt{\frac{1}{LC}\) to get L out, we need to square both sides: \(\omega^2=\frac{1}{LC}\) now we can "swap" the left with the denominator \(LC=\frac{1}{\omega^2}\) woops, moved one too many: \(L=\frac{1}{\omega^2 C}\) Obviously, the formula is the same to find C if you know f and L \(C=\frac{1}{\omega^2 L}\) Last edited: Dec 14, 2011

Anyway to find out inductance for a coil you can use Wheeler's Formula \( Inductance (\mu H) = {{0.8(NA)^2} \over {6A + 9B + 10C}} \) where N = number of turns A = average coil radius B = coil length C = coil thickness Note All quantities are in inches and the result is in microhenries \((\mu H)\). Good Luck
