Is one referring to inharmonicity or anharmonicity?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inharmonicity (Article apparently doesn't meet with Wikipedia's Quality standards).

Inharmonicity refers to the departure in frequency from the harmonic modes of vibration expected of an ideal flexible string.

Inharmonicity.

Those links aren't exactly what im looking for, Im trying to find out how to calculate inharmonies, specifically from hertz.

I don't think Hertz rent those anymore. They switched to Fords.

Sorry I couldn't resist.
