My elementary school had its first annual science fair a few weeks ago, so me and my friend signed up and we decided to do it on wireless electricity. So naturally, we built a tesla coil. It took a couple of tries, but we eventually got it to barely illuminate a portion of a fluorescent light...
Hello all! I have made a Tesla coil using a proven circuit I found online but what I have made isn’t working here is a picture please help.
PS: yes I know it is fairly messy but the specs are as fallows:
One green 5mm led
One 200ohm 1/4 W 5% resistor
Primary coil is 8...
1. Homework Statement
For a high school physics class, I chose to build a tesla coil for a real world application assignment. I was able to build it fairly easily and it turned out great. Before presenting to the class next week, I've been seeing its effect on different types of light bulbs...
i made a small crude tesla coil ( slayer exiter ) and i tried it on multiple gas tubes that i had
and i have been able to discharge neon , argon
but i have a question : how strong the electric field needed to discharge argon gas ?
i saw a slayer exciter circuit , witch is the crude more simpler version of the tesla coil
and i made it , it works quite well but i have some questions.
some questions :
1 - how strong is the magnetic field caused by this tesla coil ? it can ionize neon gas , or argon ?
2 - i...
I am trying to create a high DC voltage output(with extremely low current output).
I thought of something like this. The left coil would be the tesla coil. Can I use this to charge the capacitor and create high DC voltage? What would happen if capacitance was really high?
In all tutorials I have read on tesla coils, they have said to use a capacitor spark-gap configuration, to create a tank circuit. I want to know exactly what this means, and what is its purpose. I am not going to build a Tesla coil, I am nearly just interested in the science of it.
What is the general cost for building a tesla coil. I already have a PVC pipe and wiring, but I know I need a board, power supply, coil, led lights, capacitors, resistors, and semi-conductors, etc. I know there are some things I am missing and I am on a budget. If there are any other supplies...
-In the following figure a metal plate is immersed in a Trough of salt water, the wire hooked to plate is attached to a choke coil and the other end of choke coil is Grounded deep inside soil.
I am making a small solid state tesla coil. I have the secondary coil, toroid and primary coil but am not sure what to do for a control circuit. I was planning on using two 9 volt batteries for power. Would a DC to Pulse Width Modulator work? This is the one I was thinking of -...
I am in the process of building a tesla coil and I need a little help.
I have everything completed enough that I can start testing it. I plug the coil in and the spark gap fires immediately and continuously, but no arcs come out the toroid.
I tried moving the toroid closer to the...
