# Wire Over Plane Inductance Calculator

### Inputs

Wire Diameter
Height Above Plane
Length of Wire
Relative Permeability

### Outputs

Inductance:
H

This tool is designed to help you calculate the inductance of a wire placed above a conducting plane, which is crucial for designing and analyzing high-frequency circuits.

#### Inputs:

To compute the inductance, please provide the following parameters:

1. Wire Diameter: Enter the diameter of the wire in inches (in). This is the thickness of the wire that affects the inductance.
2. Height Above Plane: Input the height of the wire above the plane in inches (in). This is the vertical distance between the wire and the conducting plane below it.
3. Length of Wire: Provide the total length of the wire in inches (in). This measures how long the wire is, which impacts the inductance value.
4. Relative Permeability: Enter the relative permeability of the wire material. This dimensionless value indicates the materialâ€™s ability to conduct magnetic flux compared to a vacuum.

#### Output:

• Inductance: The calculator will compute and display the inductance of your wire-over-plane setup in microhenries (ÂµH). This value represents how effectively the wire stores energy in its magnetic field.

### How It Works:

1. Enter Data: Fill in the required parameters: Wire Diameter, Height Above Plane, Length of Wire, and Relative Permeability.
2. Calculate: Click the “Calculate” button to obtain the inductance value.
3. View Results: The calculator will display the computed inductance based on your inputs.

### Why Use This Calculator?

• Precision: Get accurate inductance values essential for high-frequency design and analysis.
• Efficiency: Quickly perform inductance calculations without manual computation.

#### Example Calculation:

For a wire with a Diameter of 0.1 inches, Height Above Plane of 0.5 inches, Length of Wire of 10.0 inches, and a Relative Permeability of 1.0, enter these values into the calculator to determine the inductance.
