128 Furse, Cynthia M.Capacitance and inductance sensor circuits for detecting the lengths of open- and short-circuited wiresThe length of an open- or short-circuited wire is linearly proportional to the capacitance or inductance of the wire, respectively. Several types of simple and inexpensive circuits are introduced to measure these values. Open-circuited (capacitance) measurements are very effective.
