The complete value of (4) to this order of approximation is found b addition of (8), (10), and (15).
By making p2 and /oj equal we obtain at once for the self-induction of current limited to the circumference of an anchor-ring, and uniformly dif tributed over that circumference,
p being the radius of the circular section. The value of L for this case, whe p2 is neglected, was virtually given by Maxwell *.
When the current is uniformly distributed over the area of the Hectioi we have to integrate again with respect to p-^ and pz between the limits and p in each case. For the more important terms we have from (8)
