The inductance for a single turn round-wire loop will be calculated. For
multiturn loops multiply the result with the number of turns squared.

The permeability of the medium is assumed to be 1. For other media, simply
multiply by the relative permeability.

In all cases, the current is assumed to flow in the outer surface of the
conductors. Inductance values are accurate to with a few percent. The formulas
which have been used to calculate the inductance
can be found in *Radio Engineering Handbook* by Terman.
Most of them have been derived in the book "Inductance Calculations" by F. W.
Grover.

Often a loop is employed as a so called magnetic loop antenna. Then quality factor
and capacitance values as well as the voltage on the capacitor per watt of powerinput are valuable parameters. Loop parameters will be given for regulair shaped loops,
based on a **copper conductor** with a diameter lager than the skin depth at the operating
frequency. Radiation resistance as well as copper resistance have been taken into account. Ground losses and other parasitic losses have been neglected as they depend strongly on the environment.
