Original poster: "Loudner, Godfrey by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <gloudner-at-SINTE.EDU> Hi The high frequency current does not travel on the inside surface of the pipe. The situation is more complicated than just saying that the current travels on the outside surface of the pipe. The high frequency current will travel at the surface of a good conductor, but it makes plunges deeper in to the conductor at regular intervals. Think of how a whale swins. The actual path of a high frequency current in a conductor is a problem in quantum mechanics. But I don't think that such fine detail can have any major effect upon what Tesla coilers do. It is understood for the most part how a Tesla coil works, but a detailed mathematical understanding is not available yet. In any good model of a tesla coil, one encounters severe mathematical difficulties, such as very high order differential equations and terrible multiple integrals which involve the theory of elliptic functions. And these are only a few of the mathematical dilemmas.
