Multiplied that 4.825 by the 680 pF and got 3280 pF as the capacitance of my board. Had the circuit board coil pair produced the highest frequency, I would have divided 680 by 4.825 . Dividing the area of the board by its capacitance gave a value of 18.56 pF per square inch. Therefore, to make a 185 6-pF capacitor, I would need 10 square inches of copper. Fig 4.
