Subject: spark gap/arc resistance 


Is there a rule of thumb type calculation for the resistance of a spark
gap (that's firing :-)) such as 1 ohm /inch for example?  I checked my web
site and list archives and didn't find anything such as this and don't
remember any actual values, despite the fact that the topic is often

Thanks in advance.
