Since a joule = 1 watt per second, the PPS per second doesnt matter when
you restrict the power per time base.
but to answer your question in order
1) about 2.2"
2) about .22"
3) about .022"
If you kept the joules the same and increased the PPS you would see 55"
at 100 PPS and then a decreasing length as PPS increase due to the L
and C and R of the Primary circuit. ( probably a 10-15 % drop with each
increase in PPS)
Theory is a cool thing but in 98% of the time it doesnt flow in a linear
manner with reality....
