~~<blockquot>Can we use other laws of electromagnetism to calculate the inductance of a piece of wire just like we used Gauss's law to calculate the capacitance of the 2 seperated conductors?</blockquote>~~- Yes. The inductance of a length of wire is a function of the diameter of that wire and the material around it.
