Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • It is untoward for you to continually gloat over your past triumphs. Such gloating only shows a lack of humility. Only look forward to your new atrocities.

  • To be clear he has only instituited a regime of no independent testing at all, to insure that his hoax could appear real to his believers and the play will continue.

    Your mode of thinking shows a marked lack of sense. Why in the world would a con man institute a quality program or even lie about doing so. Such a deduction is lamebrained.

  • There is no fraud involved in making some investments in real estate, or don't you beleive that? What are you some kind of communist?

    Communist? No, simply I love who really spends his money to cure children affected by cancer and I hate charlatans that used that argument in a “says” of his blog to get sympathy.

  • (One could use the zoom function on the PDF. The photo has fairly high resolution.)

    What the wires are connected to is a bit more problematic. There is also the infamous whiteboard photo. It is hard to make out, but does have a wiring diagram for the voltmeter and the calculations.

    Perhaps the deluge of new info from Rossi's promised test will change things, but the released information on the Quark-X input power measurement mystery is pretty consistent. I posted on this ages ago, but it seems to be one of those inconvenient details that get lost.

    Here, the whiteboard calculation for E1 (input power), the whiteboard circuit diagram, the text in the research papers, and even what Rossi says, are all consistent. The only thing that does not work is Rossi's calculation of the Quark-X input power, which is wrong.

    From the ckt diagram, and the text:

    The power supply drives a 1 ohm resistor in series with the quark-X.

    The voltmeter measures potential across the resistor as 0.1V = V1

    Rossi calculates power as V1X(V1/R) = 10mW. This is of course the power across the resistor, but Rossi conflates this with power into the quark-X. To determine that we would need another voltage measurement (the power supply voltage V2) and then calculate:

    V2 * I = V2 * V1 / R = 0.1 V2 W. (Or more precisely, if V2 is not >> V1, (V2-V1)* V1 / R). We do not know V2 though if 24v is the correct PSU voltage that would be 2.4W. This is from Rossi's own circuit diagram, and also his description in the paper. There he has V1^2. With one voltage as here the only way this works is measuring the power across the resistor, which gives no information about the PSU voltage or the power into the Quark-X.

    Rossi's miscalculation here is quite blatant, and he does not recant. He just asserts something wrong and lets those who support him try to find some way to make this fit.

  • Rossi's calculation of COP based on the assumption that the light that the quark produces is blackbody is wrong. All that this all means is that Rossi does not understand how LENR works, not that he is a con man.
