    I suppose you mean the opposite ?
    1W = 1Nm/s = 1J/s = [Work]/[Time] = [Power]

    There has also been some talk about how %recombination is measured and thus excludes the CCS/ATER mechanism. This would be true if there was a _reliable_ measure of %recombination in use. That is why my 2005 paper that Miles fails to reference in his…

    There has been a lot of talk about ‘efficiency’ in this thread and in discussing the CCS. I want to be sure what I mean by ‘efficiency’ is understood.

    A calorimeter measures power (i.e. Joules/second) coming out of what is inside of it. But because…

    I have been informed of an error in my previous posting in this thread. Apparently, the paper by Fleischmann, Miles, Szpak, and Mosier-Boss (ref 1 in the prior post) was not actually previously submitted for publication, and thus was never ‘rejected’.
  • Since there has already been an announcement regarding an article in Infinite Energy Issue 132, I assume it is out and available. I don't get IE but in that issue I have been led to believe that Dr. Melvin Miles presents a paper [1] authored primarily…

    ...doesn't matter. We are discussing the possibility that the MIT guys 'fraudulently altered' data to 'suppress' CF. The conclusion amongst unbiased observers is that there may have been some fancy data reduction techniques…

    Jed has taken my quote out of context and tried to turn it into something else here. I was speaking about the mathematical averaging applied by the MIT folks, not the plotter in this specific case. The…

    To begin with, there is no excess heat indicated in these plots. The supposed signal you refer to is not greater than 3 times baseline noise. Therefore it is considered noise. I'm not even sure it exceeds 2 time baseline…

    Apparently more observant than you.

    "lowered" - I assume you refer to the fact that they moved the zero to go through what is likely the arithmetic average of the region they were plotting. So what? I…

    "the fraud that made the editor of MIT papers furious"

    I looked into this. There was a preliminary data plot released and then a final one. (See page 12 of the referenced IE paper .) The final was different from the original in two ways. First, the…

    Don't understand systematic errors well do you Alain? There's no requirement they behave as you would like them to.

    Of course, if there really is no real excess heat, there is no 'heat/He' correlation.

    [Assuming #2 "2" is really "3".]

    As I noted in my first publication and in many subsequent discussions, Dr. Storms reported in his ICCF8 talk on the data he collected that calibration by electrolysis (#1 above) gave a slightly…

    The other thing to do is keep track of Lab He concentrations, which is also time-consuming and somewhat costly, as the extra analyses add up. In the 'thousands' of papers on LENR out there you can find a few that mention lab He…

    Irregardless of the amount of heat lost, whether it is 1%, 10% or 99.999%, there is a steady state established. Doing no calibration effectively assumes a value for the calibration constant instead of measuring it. Now, if the…

    "So - of these thousands of experiments. You'd expect earlier ones (for example F&P) to have more issues."

    Not necessarily. Only if there was an effort to eliminate error. So far, my suggested error hasn't been dealt with, so I see a consistent…

    @THH

    In their 2004 paper, Szpak, Mosier-Boss, Miles and Fleischmann attempt to measure the extent of recombination by externally reacting the offgasses to reform water. The cell also showed excess heat signals. They obtain a number about 5-7% larger…
