Yep, a fraction as low as about 2/100.
Is there an echo in here?
Wave length is just a different way of interpreting frequency. Once designed there is still some room for adjustment, there are certain variables (spark gap, primary coil tap, torroid size) and certain constants (secondary coil turns and diameter, cap bank, power supply), so you would design it with these in mind. Parts availability and finances are the usual governing factors though ;)The link below should provide you with a basic understanding.Semiconductor TCs run on the same principle, and must be tuned accordingly. http://deepfriedneon.com/tesla_guide.html
If you live anywhere that is ever humid (even deserts are humid at night) then there will be high leakage, you need a very dry environment for static experiments to work well.
That giant blue arc is at least 4kV. Leyden jar capacitors are not designed to operate at low voltages, you are better off finding a 1F audio capacitor.
I'm struggling to understand the point of this comment. Are you saying that you are going to attempt this with a router / jigsaw?
