I don't see a reason for a difference in the capacitance
obtained by either method. The Medhurst capacitance is
supposed to generate the right resonance frequency with the
DC inductance (and it really works), and so if the resonance
frequency is measured and the capacitance calculated
something very similar to the Medhurst capacitance will be
A possible reason for the Medhurst capacitance being
somewhat higher that one half of the capacitance of a
cylinder is the equivalent capacitance from one end of the
coil to the other end, that adds to one half of the body
capacitance of the cylinder to form the Medhurst capacitance.
