    Thanks Alan..I only need two home made nuclear reactors for the time being.

    the 1350 C service temperature and the price is good
    If the lithium/ americium pie doesn't work out I can always use them as kilns for

    I tried that several times, and the link opened a white screen with just inactive Run/Stop and Reset buttons. It could possibly be due to jscript blocking in Win7. I will test it in Linux later today.

    I spent some time with the simulator last night, exploring the effect of the component variables on the circuit behavior. Unfortunately, I haven't yet figured out how to get a functioning link to the modified circuit for posting. I did…

    I realized that spark gap parameters are critical too in the previously linked simulations in that they affect significantly the results, but I'm not sure what would be the best to use. One could make several assumptions:

    Yes, helps clarify the DC behavior of the system. However, it doesn't appear to model the AC behavior of the circuit i.e. the source of the RF signal you detected. Perhaps the simulator has a pulse source available that could be applied…

    I tried to improve the equivalent circuit simulation of the previously shown setup. The equivalent circuit of the electrode assembly is the square circuit section on the right:

    This is an Interesting and very creative concept. I've been giving some thought to resonance shown by the radio signal.

    For example, I estimate the capacitance of your electrodes to be about .01 uF. This is based on the following parameters:

    Thanks for your continued suggestions and patience.

    I'll try to summarize what I was trying to accomplish with a few short key points.

    I took this into account with a very tedious but accurate way of measuring the times.
    I took a screen shot of Fig 6B and pasted it into Visio, then rotated it to get the Y axis vertical (-0.35 degrees).

    Then drew a line from…

    Thank you. Below is high-resolution FFT spectrum, showing the dominant 1.3 kHz resonance on a background of chaotic broad-spectrum noise. I also included an audio file of that region, with the octave band 1 to 2 kHz filtered out.

    The sound recorded on the video above is interesting in that there's a clear audio modulation that varies from about 1 kHz to 1.3 kHz, presumably imposed on an RF carrier.
    Here are FFT and waveform images from a segment toward the end of the recording.…

    At +20°C (relative to the cold junction) a Type K thermocouple's voltage will be around 800 µV. The rate constant is thus around 40µV/°C. So the jitter in the temperature data represents about 80 microvolts p-p at the DAQ input

    I just read a few comments. This is bachelor level talk. They simply ignore that Mills model just delivers 2-3 digits more than the insane QED model...They do not even understand that QM cannot explain any force. QM has to postulate…

    I don't think a rail gun was used in these tests. The projectile is described as a bullet, and commercial use of Bi in bullets for sport and hunting has become common, to replace lead with its toxic residue. Bi is also now used in electronic solders for…

    If I remember correctly, the electrolyte started as 0.5 molar KOH. From several comments on the internet, steel pipe is acceptable for transport of KOH solution at STP, and it only becomes corrosive at 120 C or above.

    Not so different from sonofusion. The shock wave could be focused inside a ball of dense Bi plasma microseconds after the impact. If the bullet is a hollow-point, it could probably penetrate a thick piece of steel.

    Well, I wouldn't call 1 km/sec relatively low velocity. That's mach 3, so there will be a powerful shock wave associated with the impact as well as the substantial kinetic energy of the bullet at that velocity.

    Thanks for clarifying that detail. It might be interesting to try the experiment with one of the later coins, even though it's smaller in diameter.

    If I understand correctly from previous posts, the cell under discussion uses an Italian 100-lire coin as anode and a stainless steel washer as cathode. From an online description, I think the 100-lire coin is made from Cu-Ni coinage alloy of around 70%…

    Yes, it might help but the remaining issues make this kind of measurement rather imprecise. For example, any difference in the heat transfer path from the contents to the container will affect the thermal transfer to the outer surface…
