MetCalc - The Metal Calculator

Base for your Calculations of Engineering, Science, Education and Craft

Electrical Conductivity

You can select each property for calculation in a very simple way of about 30 metals in a dimension of your choice

In this view you can calculate electrical values for metals. So you can calculate the voltage drop through a wire with a certain diameter when a certain current is applied. The value are calculated on the base for the specific electrical conductivity at different temperatures for many metals (if the dependance from temperature was availbale). Additionally the resistance R will calculated.

One can convert the results and the input in different units/dimensions

You have to give the values for 3 properties and the 4th value will be calculated. The property to be calculated can be seletced by the round button.

The result - after clicking on the Calculate! button - and the input data can be copied to clipboard in a way that it can be pasted to spreadsheets for further calculations

By pressing Info/Help you get infos about the source of the data and partly hints if there are special restrictions or uncertainties in a calculation - e.g. missing functions of the specific resistance from the temperature
