I'm using a circuit that is almost the same as hers to test some coils I've been building lately. In mine I have the diode back across the coil from the transistor, instead of ground. And I have a capacitor at the top of the coil, which is insulated from the battery by a diode.
The pulses become twice as wide on the load coil, since the collapse adds width.
I read some of her theory on magnetic current, but she lost me when things got too complicated. She gets into all kinds of particles, and configurations, which to me is too complex.
Nature tends to be simple, and so should the explanations of her laws. If you have to make physics too complex, you're lost.
