                                (21) The general equations are then applied to the calculation of the 
coefficients of mutual induction of two circular currents and the coefficient 
of self induction in a coil. The want of uniformity of the current 
in the different parts of the section of a wire at the commencement of the 
current is investigated, I believe for the first time, and the consequent 
correction of the coefficient of self induction is found. 

These results are applied to the calculation. of the self induction of 
the coil used in the experiments of the Committee of the British Association on Standards 
of Electric Resistance and the value compared with that deduced from 
the experiments.
