Mr. Tesla, at that point, what did you mean by electro-magnetic momentum?

I mean that you have to have in the circuit, inertia. You have to have a large self-inductance in order that you may accomplish two things: First, a
comparatively low frequency, which will reduce the radiation of the electromagnetic waves to a comparatively small value, and second, a great
resonant effect. That is not possible in an antenna, for instance, of large capacity and small self-inductance. A large capacity and small
self-inductance is the poorest kind of circuit which can be constructed; it gives a very small resonant effect. That was the reason why in my
experiments in Colorado the energies were 1,000 times greater than in the present antennae.

I mean this: If you pass a current into a circuit with large self-induction, and no radiation takes place, and you have a low resistance, there is no
possibility of this energy getting out into space; therefore, the impressed impulses accumulate.


Yes. Hence Joseph Newman's Big Eureka.👍
