Current carrying capability of a PCB trace

In designing a PCB the question of how much current a trace can carry is common. Many web based calculators are available to do this quickly. The actual mathematics is more or less hidden. Sometimes it may become important to look at the equation that generates these results so that the mathematics can be used in multiple forms to extract multiple parameters. For interested users this expression is provided in a very brief paper at
