Two simple formulas are presented for the capacitance of a finite‐length, conducting right‐circular cylindrical tube which resides in a homogeneous medium of permittivity ϵ. The formulas may be used to determine capacitance for all ratios (radius/length). The range of (radius/length) over which each formula applies is established by comparisons with capacitance calculated from numerical solutions of an integral equation.
