Question:
I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the magnetic field created by the continuous breakdown of air, made by my tesla coil. Would it be a simple ampere law solution based on just the current or is there more to it? thanks


Replies:
Just the current and the conductor geometry are needed -- including the metal conductors, of course.
