Amazing isn't it! Resonance is a very real electrical transformation of
voltages and currents. Your method of reading the voltage sounds pretty
cool! I'm excited that you were able to measure this! Good job! Now that
the measurement supported the prediction, you will likely want to adjust
the cap to prevent power transformer resonance.

That's what I figured from your description. Thanks for letting me know.
There are some subtle differences in a single strand of 22g magnet wire
and 22g stranded wire. This helps explain some oddities I've been
wondering about (which is why I asked). No problem with using the
stranded wire for your experiment though. I just wanted that clarification.
