I`m confused here! how did you guys came up with the 67n 60n 52n. They all seem to be very high values for the water capacitor we are using. Are you assuming this value for only one 3inch tube set?

hm

The calculated value for the cell will be much different from the actual measured value. Like for Stan's resonant cavity, the tubes calculated capacitance is around 877pF, but the measured value for a single tube with distilled water is 670nF. Since Meyer had 10 tubes wired in series you will have a capacitance of around 67nF, but you can get the value lower by circulating the water through the tubes.

Does it have the right frequency if we use one cell or do we need 10 to match the frequency?

Why did SM build all the 11 VIC coils and circuits if he used 1 VIC and circuit and 10 wfc cells in series?

Big question is how to correctly measure and calculate this capacitance of the cell.

If we look for measurements we see in the table different measurement frequencies at 100Hz,120Hz,1kHz and 10kHz and the capacitance.

We notice in air (empty) that the cell has almost constant capacitance of 21pF.

Now if we go for tap water we see on low frequency higher capacitance and high frequency lower capacitance, so not constant!

The capacitance is changing when the frequency is changing. When we want 600Hz for resonance there is a capacitance value at this frequency and it depends on the used water-type and cell construction.

Can we make a function (guessing; exponential) for capacitance values and frequency for calculations?
