This experimental study investigates the measuring length of an iron rod with the interaction between ferromagnetic material and inductance. Measuring such a small lengths by using a ruler is a major problem because of parallax etc. To prevent this, “How does the self inductance value change in inductance when the iron rod is imbedded in different lengths?” question was tested. Because the self inductance value (L) value will help us to calculate the length of the iron rod in the solenoid. The experiment was made in 3 parts. First, when the inductance was empty, self-inductance value was found. After this, to find the permeability of iron rod that was used in the investigation, iron rod was fully imbedded into the solenoid, resonant frequency was read and permeability was calculated. Thirdly, 11 different lengths of iron rod was imbedded into the solenoid and by using their resonant frequencies, L values were calculated and by using another equation, how much length of the iron that was imbedded into the inductance was found. At the beginning of the experiment, how much length that will be imbedded was measured by caliper. These values were accepted as theoretical values, lengths. So, the percentage errors were calculated using the data gathered. Errors are varied from %1.37 to %4.92. The results were plotted on a graph and this graph showed the relation between how much length is imbedded vs. L values. Those results showed that as the imbedded lengths decrease, self-inductance values decrease directly proportional.
