How do you calculate the resistance in a coil?

    Hi all. I'm just wondering if it is possible to calculate the resistance in a coil without the amperage value? i've got voltage,coil-diametre, amount of turns, coils material type.

    The only way i think it is possible if i set a ampmetre into the circuit. is there any way?

    Thank you.
