Original poster: "John H. Couture by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-uswest-dot-net>" <couturejh-at-worldnet.att-dot-net> Kurt - I agree the equations shown on my web site do not represent the table shown below. However, for toroids above 20" large diameter there is a close agreement. The graph I show in my books is based on my web site equations. The graph covers toroids with large diameters from 10" to 80" and spheres 10" to 60". There are straight line curves for 3"-6"-12" and 20" small diameter toroids. None of the curves overlap. The equations were shown in the Tesla Coil Builders Association Newsletter Vol 6, #2. The graph was made several years ago using the Quattro Pro program. The graph shows isotropic capacitances which have to be reduced a certain percentage when the toroid is placed on the secondary coil. I estimated the percentage reduction should be about 20% but this may be too high. Terry's E-Tesla6 program will certainly give a more accurate capacitance because it takes more of the surrounding variables into consideration. I will send you a copy of the graph if you send me a stamped self addressed envelope.

I need to point to two facts, in case, somebody likes to make use of this table. In any case, however, beeing it a toroid or a sphere in TC use, I would rather prefer, to make the E-Tesla6 calculation. The 2 facts are: 1.) Error here, in definition of diameter: NOT center-center, but outer (maximal) diameter of toroid!!! (plausibility: Bert P.'s Eqn.) ¦ V > C-C Chord Nom. > Toroid Toroid Cap Equiv.Diam.

John, I was not able to find a satisfactory way, using the equations I find on your website, to represent the above table (trying quite a number of some possible input data errors about C-C vs. outer d1).
