Hey guys I am just about to run my 15,000 volt tesla coil. The total capacitance i need for this coil is 0.025 uF. I bought 13, .33 uF caps. I need bleed resistors now. I calculated that i need .6 mega ohm resistors so far. 15,000/.025 = 600,000. = .6 Megaohm resistors. I don't know how to calculate the wattage for each resistor. I look around on the internet and i see many different answers but no straight answer so before I go out shopping I really wanted to ask some pros. When i finish i Want to show of my amazing coil. Thanks for the help if any, bye.
