Original poster: "David Thomson by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <dave-at-volantis-dot-org> Hi Bart, >It is unclear to me if Tesla was referencing affects of object to the test object or if he actually thought the object itself was changing. It would appear to me to be both. As the ball is raised, the physical object is changing due to distance between the "plates." Due the large scale of distance added between the "plates" anything that can increase the strength of the dielectric must enter into the equation. One has to question if we fully understand all the "stuff", if any, that is getting between the ball and ground as well as the effect of surrounding charge changes. It has been pointed out by some that the earth has an electrostatic gradient. If the electrostatic gradient is logarithmic (due to the inverse square law of charge) there could be a substantial change in a 40 feet elevation difference. I'm looking for some detailed data on this electrostatic gradient. Dave
