Hi Gerald, I had a similar problem where two impedances were added in series, and I was wondering if the following data would provide enough information to determine the acting phase angle of a gas discharge, which in this case was a 2 ft argon tube. First let me digress a bit about what I have seen with gas disharges. We all know that a gas discharge must be current limited or ballasted. But why is this msnip....
