If I remember correctly, it has more to do with number of turns than iron.

Z=E/I=R + jXL
We already know Z. Once you know R you can calculate XL (at 60 Hz), and you know XL "is at right angles" to R.

If R = XL = 4500 ohms then Z would = 6364/45
It's vector algebra.

Probably, though, the Z is somewhat dependent on the position of the iron slug in the solenoid.

The number of turns in the coil will have a greater effect on the inductive reactance than the iron core.

Wiki seems to agree with you, with the N^2 term in the formula.

Finding a formula for a coil with a core having a high permeability seems to be a little more difficult.
