Hello all....

I am trying to figure out how you determine how much of a gap distance between two stationary electrodes should be? For a stationary spark gap. Is there a formula ? All responses are appreciated :)

If the distance is small compared to the radius of curvature of the electrodes, 30 kV/cm. Hot electrodes reduce the figure in inverse proportion. Pressure increases it in direct proportion. If the distance is very small, the relation fails. You can´t obtain sparks with voltages below 300 V.
