Capacitance between two parallel wires not straight

    Hi,

    I would like to know how to calculate capacitance between two wires which are parallel but not necessarily straight.for instance the two wires might be parabolic..I would like to calculate for such general structures.i.e) two parallel wires that are not necessarily straight.

    Thanks in advance

    You would use calculus.

    Is this a general question, or do you have a specific homework exercise in mind?

    This forum is appropriate for your general question. Have you studied caculus in maths classes?
