On Booker's report, does anyone have an energy estimate for the H2 + O2 supplied before it hits the Pd catalyst, and any electric or thermal energy added at that point of the experiment. As Bob Greenyer pointed out the energy of atomic H to H2 or H2O must be accounted for to rule that out as the cause of the excess energy in the report.
I read the report yesterday and noted around 950 kJ of excess energy in the runs. Back of the envelope that is about 8 grams of H2 or around 20 grams of gasoline, i.e. less than an ounce; so ruling this chemical energy out is necessary.
The amount of H2 used is not given, not even the pressure. If we're talking about burning the H2, only a tiny amount of O2 was added to produce a tiny amount of water, and so O2 would be by far the limiting factor. But let's assume that it was a fully optimized H2 + O2 reaction, and assume your 8 grams of H2 to produce that energy is correct. We know that 1 mole of any gas at 1 atmosphere is about 22.4 litres. Also, 8 grams of H2 gas is 4 moles. So we're talking about 4*22.4 =~ 90 litres of H2 gas at 1 atmosphere required to produce the energy reported, ignoring the extra volume for the O2 gas. The SunCell cube has a volume of about 1 L. Hard to see how the reaction could consume 90 litres in a few seconds in a volume that small.
