  5. 5. Tesla Coil • a type of resonant transformer circuit • It is used to produce high voltage • Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lighting, x-rays, electrotherapy, and Wireless energy transfer • http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm ons/2/27/Maker_Faire_2008_Tesla_Coil.ogg
  6. 6. Edison vs. Tesla • Became rivals because the invention of Tesla’s DC, Direct current, and Edison’s AC, Alternating current • Edison wanted to make people pay to use AC rather than Tesla giving free DC. • Edison wanted to prove that DC was harmful so he shocked an innocent elephant to prove that DC was dangerous. • And of course people picked Edison over Tesla.
