There isn't one for a toroid attached to a coil - yet! We are
working on it. When I get some more of the charting done, I think
this one might be cracked at last. If you could see how many
different sized terminals end up with the same capacitance when
plonked on top of different sized coils....
Think of it as being an extension of the coil (cylinder) and
adding to its size.....

For a helix, the height is pretty well fixed in concrete as is the
radius.
