Spark-gap Tesla Coil

Tesla Coils are cool! This is a spark-gap Tesla Coil that I built for one of my undergraduate Physics courses as extra credit.

For my undergraduate Electricity and Magnetism Physics course we had an extra credit assignment and I decided to build a Tesla Coil.

A Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity.
