As I said, this is a quick and dirty, convenient numerical approximation, accurate for single layer, air core coils. It is from the time before PCs when practical calculations were done with a pencil and gray matter. There are more complex formulas that are 1-2% more accurate. It's just like using 22/7 ~Pi instead of 3.1415926535.... The formula I gave can be found in: 1. Tab Handbook of Radio Communications. by J.J.Carr (K4IPV) 1987 2. Modern Tesla Coil Theory by Duane A. Bylund 1990 3. Old ARRL Handbooks 4. Most older texts on radio communication written for technicians. If you use the formula, don't forget the proper parentheses. (Nr)^2/(9r+20h) Matt D.
