Hi Gerry,You are, of course, mathematically correct. I was attempting to comeup with an easy to visualize, intuitive explanation for someone whois enthusiastic, but to whom the math and theory seem to still besomewhat of an amorphous cloud. IMO, Ipeak = Vfire / sqrt (Lp/Cp) isanything but visual or intuitive, but it certainly IS accurate aslong as R ~ 0.Matt D.

For some strange reason, when I wrote up the Tesla coil formulas thing I used: Ipeak = Vfire / sqrt (Lp/Cp) Instead of the more proper form: Ipeak = Vfire x sqrt (Cp/Lp) That was corrected a while back: http://hot-streamer.com/temp/FormulasForTeslaCoils.pdf

So the equation then becomes: Iprimary = Vfire x SQRT(Cp/Lp) x EXP(-R x t / (2 x Lp) x SIN(t / SQRT(Lp x Cp))

I am sure you wanted to know all that :o))) Cheers, Terry
