I was wondering if anyone had created plasma in a container.
I want to play with this plasma but don't really know what to do to get it.
Can anyone give me info on how to make it? Can a person create plasma in an
ordinary light bulb.

I experimented with some men's deodorant on my Tesla Coil. I took a plastic
bag and sprayed some of my deodorant "You're the Fire" into it. Next I
sealed the bag with a piece of wire going into the bag. When I had turned my
Tesla coil on I was getting green sparks. (With other deodorants I got a
blue spark)
Be AWARE: Do not use deodorant that has a really strong smell. It will
explode in the bag.
Try my experiment. It's quit cool.

Don't you by any chance know if there is a person in South Africa (not me)
that also has written to you or made contact to a Tesla coil list or anythig.

I want to know if the coefiecient of a coil is .6 is it like the following
or how do you calculate it: The secondary coil has a diameter of 6 inches
and the primary a diameter of 10 inches. Is that right?

I have calculated my Q and I think I'm wrong. Please check my calculations:

Q =10550 uH / .0008 ohms

Q = 13187500 (it seems to me as if it a bit to high.)

See yah.
