What is the capacitance and/or inductance of a single straight piece of copper wire? I know the answer is on Wiki, but I need for the answer to be supported. I know that Wiki provides references, but I can not get to the references. I am don't have access to the IEEE data base or any other such scholarly database or web site. I actually need a scholarly paper or text book reference such as by J.D. Jackson. I have been out of school for a long time (3 years) and I am still trying to finalize my thesis without having the needed reference resources.
The formula for inductance of a straight piece of wire is given in the following link which also includes references:
The answer can be found in this document http://k9axn.com/_mgxroot/page_10920.html
The equation is in two forms, one in CM and one in feet. The formatting for CM and feet is on page 585 and both equations on 586 for vertical and horizontal wires.
A pre calculated and the K factor chart are on P.609. It is a simple formula to use.
Note on the pre calculated chart that the height above ground makes far less difference than most think.
As for the inductance formulas, you will find on WIKO, several different equations. If you are working with antennas and displacement current, you need to define your intent because the inductance and capacitance in an antenna or transmission line combine to appear as non reactive impedance.
