Re: Math Doodling

An interesting hypothesis.

Playing devil's advocate --- the magnetic field depends on current not
voltage, so a larger cap should be capable of delivering higher current if
the impedance is low enough.  The potential produced depends on rate change
of current (again not voltage) across the secondary inductor.  If you
presume the impedance to be a fixed value then the current actually "drawn"
by the load would be equal no matter how large a current source is
available.  We do need to be sure, however, this minimum value is achieved.

Comments -- ideas --- large flames???
