    My remark concerned the word "hypothesis": F&P didn't present their results as HYPOTHESIS, but as FACT.

    In doing so, they spent their academic and scientific authoritativeness in assuring readers that they had been able to…

    Rate of water/foam level lowering in the cells

    As known, the core of the 1992 F&P paper (1) is page 16, where an excess heat of 144.5 W was calculated, which allowed the authors to conclude: "We note that excess rate of energy production is about four

    No, no. It was not presented as hypothesis. Read carefully the abstract (1): "We present here one aspect of our recent research on the calorimetry of the Pd/D2O system which has been concerned with high rates of specific excess

    The foam we are talking about is a product de la brasserie IMRA, Côte d'Azur: FP's experiments discussion

    Extremely unlikely that this is the case shown in the F&P videos. However, it's a good suggestion. To avoid misunderstandings, let's ask RB to use LiOD solutions at different levels of concentration.

    Yes, of course. The residual foam weighs only a few milligrams.

    Anyway, thanks for this observation, because it allows me to better clarify my criticisms to the F&P paper presented at ICCF3 (1).

    As stated in the abstract, the…

    I'm dealing with the F&P document (the ICCF3 paper) that is considered their major paper (1), not with the first paper of them that was not "rushed, very incomplete and contained a clear error" (2).

    Please,
    - take whatever solution you want;
    - evaporate it and obtain a residue which coats the sides of the test tube;
    - wait 4 days and OBSERVE if that residue vanishes (as happened for Cell 3 (1));
    - post the photos here.

    Almost complete vanishing of the residual foam in Cell 3

    One of the most clear evidence of the role played by the foam in the erroneous assessment made by F&P about the timing of the boil-off phase (1) is the large amount of residual foam remaining at…

    No, I said the opposite. The four Figure 6 of F&P paper (1) have a time resolution of 6000 s for each horizontal pixel, too scarce to say what happened in the 600 s that F&P considered for the final boil-to-dry period. We can only…

    Well, the 15.2% of error in your calculation is not too bad, considering that you are using data provided by authors who reported to have estimated a final 11 minutes boiling period and then used a value of 10 minutes in their most…

    Boiling regimes at various stages

    During the "four cell boil-off" experiment reported in the F&P paper (1), each cell goes through different boiling regimes, according to the electric current and to the (bulk) water temperature. The following jpeg…

    There should be something wrong in your method. Please, consider your last time value, when the voltage reaches 100 V, it is 1662 ks. Then, look at Figure 8 in the F&P paper (1), the maximum Tcell is at about 1655 ks. That's…

    You are giving me too much importance. It's the F&P's foam which has to be "promulgated", not mine. And until now you have been its most active promulgator:

    Yes, it really matters. And, in any case, from the data reported in the F&P paper presented at ICCF3 (1) there is no reason to infer that they obtained any excess heat. Their results can be easily explained by simple and mundane…

    Praiseworthy attempt to remedy to the lack of more detailed data, but you should pay attention to the time values. Probably, to get these values, you have expanded the time axis. In such a case the timelines are no longer…

    The trailer is not so exiting, just words. Also the comment of a LENR fan (1) doesn't encourage to see it. Anyway thanks for the suggestion. This movie, as well as the others which have been produced on the CF subject, is another…

    I'm not submitting a paper to Physics A and I already answered to you.

    The indecent data I'm dealing with are those reported in the F&P documents.
