Re: Vtop vs coil length

```Doc.R, stephan, all:
This sure has impressed on me, that I should not push this coil much
further, since I am close to a spark =3   'coillength.

I was using:
Vout = SQRT(2*Ep/Ctot)  From one of Malcoms old postings.
where Ep=0.5*Cp*Vc^2

Stephan, It is not up to me to agree with your math, I simply study it,
give up, and save it in my TC-Math txt file, and hope to, if not
understand it, then at least use it, some day..... :-)
