Enter the total inductance (H) and the total distance (m) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cable Inductance Per Meter. 

Cable Inductance Per Meter Formula

IPM = L / D


  • IPM is the Cable Inductance Per Meter (H/m)
  • L is the total inductance (H)
  • D is the total distance (m)

To calculate Cable Inductance Per Meter, divide the total inductance by the distance or length in meters.

How to Calculate Cable Inductance Per Meter?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cable Inductance Per Meter.

  1. First, determine the total inductance (H). 
  2. Next, determine the total distance (m). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = IPM = L / D.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cable Inductance Per Meter.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total inductance (H) = 43

total distance (m) = 90
