First off, this is amazing thank you so much for providing this site. I am having some difficulty with resonance formula. I can solve for Xc(because frequency,and capacity are given numbers) but how do I get inductive reactance figures,
Xl = 2*pi*f*LThere are many formulas for calculating L using number of turns and the dimensions of the coil.
Wheeler's equation is widely used as a pretty good approximation. http://home.earthlink.net/~jimlux/hv/wheeler.htmthe two forms that turn up in tesla coils are the single layer solenoid (for the secondary) and the flat single layer pancake (for the primary)
I don't know that the secondary links on my Wheeler page still work.What most folks do is use a program like JavaTC (google for it, there's online and downloadable versions) to run the calculations.
I have tried formulas that involve the number
of coils, gauge of wire, resistance, frequency,ect. Could you please she'd some light on the subject. As I don't have the instraments to collect this data. Thank you much.
