RE: Relativity and tesla coils

Of course. In the relativistic view, electric and magnetic fields are
just two versions of the same thing. An electric field is build from
Coulomb's law and then transformed into a magnetic field.

Hello, The magnetic field can be derived from Coulomb's law using
Relativity ( the Lorentz transformation) See "Principles Of Electricity
Magnetism" Pugh and Pugh. I was amazed when I first saw this derivation
so many years ago, Sigh
