    All the contents have vanished for me. Strange!

    Shortage of Trolls posting, obviously.

    little heads up from the MFMP Nova test - they see a significant amount of transmutations ... stay tuned for more updates

  • barty

    sounds interesting

  • barty

    did they see excess heat as well?

    Very difficult to measure XSH inside a microwave.

  • barty

    :P

    You wrote: "Very difficult to measure XSH inside a microwave." Yes. And that's hilarious !

  • Alan Smith

    Thank you Jed. At least someone noticed.

  • bocijn

    "difficult to measure XSH inside a microwave" but calorimetry is possible- w.ww.sump4.com/publications/conf023.pdf

  • Alan Smith

    Difficult doesn't mean impossible of course, but for many reasons I would always be cautious about the results.

    If one uses the geometric mean of the T4 for each of the cells (instead of averaging them), in all three versions (10 cells, 20 cells, and 30 cells), and then calculate radiant power, all three agree very closely, with the following…

    As long as the camera does whatever it does consistently, whatever internal algorithms it uses is of little consequence.

    RMS is probably not what I actually mean.
    Something more like the logarithmic mean or geometric mean is more like what I am thinking of.
    It's been a very long time since I did any of that sort math

    The IR camera will report a different T for different sized areas, even if the measurement areas centred on the same location, if there is a temperature gradient across that area. This is because the camera measures radiant power…
