Mutual resistance between two wires

  1. Jan 22, 2004 #1
    I want to be able the calculate the mutual resistance between two wires, where one wire is horizontal and the other is vertical, i am using the theory developed by G. A. Campbell Physics review 1915 "mutual inductances of circuits composed of straight wires"

    Do you mean resistance or inductance?

    I would say that you should first calculate the general mutual impedance. Then, just infer the mutual resistance as the real part. I can't remember if this is accurate, though.
