Tesla referred to coils of large inductance as coils with "great momentum".
This quaint and interesting link of electrical systems to mechanics is a
wonderful way of linking our brains to unseen processes.
The key usage in the CSN was Tesla's statement that the resonator in a
magnifier system must be a coil of much greater momentum compared to the
secondary in the driver.
