On high voltage transmission lines how can you estimate the voltage transmitted based on the number of insulators used?

Count the number of stacked "rings" on the insulator and multiply by 10kV; this will give you a rough estimate. THAT IS B.S. TRANSMISSION IS 500KV SO YOUR FRIEND WANTS 50 OF THOSE B.S. THAT IS NO CORRELATION TO THAT. BUT DISTANCE IS A VERY GOOD FACTOR TRUST ME ON THAT.
