Hi there,

Okay, I hate to delve even deeper into this, but volts and amperes and 
coulombs are all arbatrary units used to describe something. You could 
assign an ampere as coulomb/minutes, and it would describe the same thing, 
but would just be 1/60th the current of our standard ampere. You could also 
assign a coulomb as the number of electrons moving through a conductor at 
one amp for one minute, although the actual number of electrons would be 60 
times greater. Sooo... what point do I have about tesla coils? Hang on, 
almost there... We have at least came to a standard unit of measuring a 
certain amount of electrons (coulombs) moving through a conductor in a 
certain amount of time (seconds, and thus, amperes) at a certain electric 
potential (volts) which works out to be a measurement of power (watts). All 
of this amounts to having a standard unit to give a comparison to in order 
to explain observed events. (the breaker tripping or the wires in the h! 
ouse melting) Now, when you are running your coil, and the breaker doesn't 
trip, you know that you are running some current at a standard voltage, and 
that current doesn't amount to the current limit dictated by the breaker. 
So you talk about that current in a unit everybody else will understand, 
and since you can say the same about wattage, you then reach an equal 
ground (watts) which is easy to measure and explain for comparing coil 
(Now, current does rely on time, which is relative to the velocity of the 
body moving through the 4 dimensions so we may have to factor the 
relativistic equations into john freau's equation. Now if the earth is 
rotating at 463m/s at the equator (you may have to factor in latitude) and 
revolving the sun at 29,847m/s and the sun is moving throuought the galaxy 
at 217,215m/s we get a total of 247,525m/s (Now, this is assuming you are 
rotating with the earth at the fastest point of rotation and the same goes 
for the orbit of the earth while traveling with the sun) Now, we apply the 
relativistic equation of time dilation: T = t0 / sqrroot(1-v^2/c^2) Where:
T = time interval on clock in relative motion
t0 = time interval on clock at rest (One second, in this case)
v = speed of relative motion
c = speed of light (3 * 10^8m/s)
So for every second someone at the galatic center runs their coil, we run 
it .00000034 seconds longer! So make sure you factor that into your 
effeciency of your coil when you are talking to somebody "out there"!) =P
