Here is a formula that approximates the inductance of the coil and the
inputs are in meters.  It works good for solenoid secondaries with 3 to 1
H/D ratio.  But it differs noticeably from Wheeler's formula when the H/D
ratio is .5/1 or lower.

         (N*R)^2 * 4 * 10^-6 * kg * m
 henry = ----------------------------
                (R + H) coul^2

R and H in meters, N is unit less.
