Homework Help: Inductance of a capacitor-

  1. Apr 28, 2007 #1
    inductance of a capacitor-urgent

    Please can someone help me quickly with this problem:

    Use both the flux and energy methods to calculate the inductance per unit length of a pair of parallel, planar conductors of length l , width w, and spacing d . Assume l >> w>> d and neglect fringing.

    the fact that I dont have a current to work with confuses me.

    Thank you

    The inductance of a system is given by the ratio of the magnetic flux linked and the current. For any current I calculate the flux and find the ratio. I will be canceled out.
