Dear Sir, I managed to find your web page fm google.

I got this problem in my office or any aircon places... whenever i feel cold, when i touch a door knob, a cabinet or anyone of my colleague... there sure will come a loud spark sound and a bite too. How should i overcome this? Is there any solution to avoid from having the sparks?

Awaiting for your reply.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year~

Thanks/With Warmest Regards

I don't have the ability to send out sparks on door knobs BUT I do turn off street lights when I'm stressed, shock people all the time, send out a strange noise on my computer, etc. Had massive brain surgery and have signals when I'm happy, sad, glad, etc. Sometimes it hurts to feel the 'signals' in my head.

Dear AMSCi, Does anyone have interest in a Redpoint Encapsulator? This is a ~50 gallon vac/pressure chamber used to de-gas and dissolve gasses in polymers, followed by thermal cure. I got it for use as a large vac chamber to evaporate Al on large-ish objects such as mirrors, art items, etc. But no room any more, and it goes out! Free to first trailer / truck that shows up, otherwise it will head for recycling and soon! Any interest? Regards, Jim Russell (253) 773-3919 off (425) 802-3713 m

I am amazed by the unusual insight that transistors are devices controlled in fact by base voltage but not current in the article "How Do Transistors Work?". I would like to know if it is possible that the author write another article to explain how FETs and MOSFETs work in the near future? Thanks!
[I'll do one eventually. Short version: in FETs, the insulating depletion regions act like balloons, inflating and deflating according to the voltages applied to the three terminals. Increase the voltage, and these "balloons" move towards each other, squeezing the conducting channel from the side and changing its width and length. A central idea: the term "pinch-off" does not mean that the channel is pinched closed. Instead it means that the insulating "balloons" of depletion-region have pushed flat together but without touching... and the very thin channel that remains between them can start acting extremely weird. For example, during "pinch-off mode," if we increase the voltage between the Source and Drain, the depletion regions change shape and the channel becomes longer. It becomes just exactly long enough to keep the current constant. VERY weird eh? It's a length-changing resistor, controlled by the voltage applied across it, and acting as a constant-current regulator. -billb]

I have always wanted to build a model maglev train, and now I can because of the informative articles on this site! One question though, in your linear motor article, you have to power the electromagnet on the vehicle with a battery; Why can't you put the permanent magnets on the vehicle and electromagnets on the track so that the vehicle can be propelled indefinitely (until the power is cut)? If you can, what else on your design do you have to change? If you want to email me here it is (minus the B): rkjamesoB at ncsu.edu

Hi, Bill. I asked at MadSci Network about aluminum foil balls, and you were kind enough to respond. I have a bit of a follow up for you. The ball I had been using has finally ceased working, and I need a new one. Apparently, eventually, it does need replacing. And I had already stopped using dryer sheets because my son's skin is too sensitive to the chemicals, so I had full-blown static going before I started using the aluminum foil. Thank you very much for your answer. This has been driving me crazy.

Just discovered your web site. Great job! My fundamental question concerning em flow in a circuit is this...Since electrons have inertia and electrons have to move to produce current how can the em fields in the space around a circuit move at the speed of light. There has to be a time delay for the electrons to move, unlike the E X B of a wave in free space. Yet, we say that the velocity is the speed of light in both cases. Once the Poynting flow is generated in the space around the wire, say a air or vacuum filled coax, the speed of propagation is the speed of light without any inertial effects due to the electrons.

An IDEA, For use with Space Warp Capacitor Do you know that if you put powder on a drum and beat it with certain frequencies (beat at certain locations on the drum) the result is that powder forms patterns on the drum (because of anti/nodes), welllllll How about, one method to create all them very many layers in a space warp capacitor array is to use a similiar method to make electrically conductive material move into layers (pattern formed by waves). This could allow you to create a 50cm long capacitor that has potentially millions of layers!!!!!! and without all that hard work of assembling layers. . . . . Maybe a future version could have a frequenc/ies producing device at an end of the capacitor, AND when the capacitor has a burn out (what ever it is called when the capacitor no longer works because of dielectric breakdown) you simply active the device attached and it makes the layers reform, OR maybe the device could be on all the time during the operation of the capacitor and that way it never breaksdown and the maximum voltage possible is increased!

Hello, There's nothing like getting the straight story on a subject frought with bad analogies, explainations. So much appreciated, from both a curiosty standpoint, and from a practical standpoint.

I built up a new computer recently, and so was interested in the subject of electricity specifically, because I live in a house without 3 pronged AC recepticals.

Your article, Why Three Prongs -- http://amasci.com/amateur/whygnd.html --goes a long way in explaining the mysteries of the subject, and electricity in general, and I have a couple questions that don't seem to be answered in the article.

If manufacturers ingeniously started connecting ground wire to metal appliance chasis, in case of a short circuit, why did they attach one wire to the chasis before they were doing it for this (short circuit protection) reason? [It was for shielding of low-level signals. I've only seen one device like that: a cheap tube-type guitar amp from the 1950s which had no power transformer, but used 120V to run the tubes. If you plugged it in one way it was safe, but if you turned the power plug the other way, it would make the chassis hot. Since the guitar had no grounded metal parts, the only way you'd ever get shocked was if you touched some grounded metal and then touched the metal back of the wooden amplifier box... or more likely, if you grabbed the metal audio jack (AND the plug happened to be flipped into the dangerous position.) Since there are old stories of people getting bad shocks from metal microphones while standing on wet ground outdoors, I wouldn't be suprised if lots of the cheap audio amps from early "electric guitar" days had their metal chassis "grounded" to one random side of the power plug. -billb]

Also, in the case of three pronged male plug grounding, is one of the other two prongs still attached to "ground" for backward compatablity? [ Yes, one is still grounded. It's called "neutral." We cannot use it as ground because during high currents (2000 watt heaters, also during short circuits!) it may develop many volts in relation to true ground because copper wires are resistors, not ideal conductors. Also, sometimes electricians make mistakes and swap the hot and neutral lines at the outlet, or even get the system wrong at the main junction box. Safety ground MUST be ground; no mistakes allowed. The third pin has a different shape of connection to the wires (helps avoid mistakes), uses different color wire, and in modern setups is connected to grounded metal conduit for redundant safety. Get it wrong, and the breakers blow when power is applied for the first time. -billb] If not, why the different sized eyes? If so, then why is it wrong to use as ground, the wire corresponding to this eye, when converting from a two prong to three prong GFCI?

I'm not sure I've asked the right questions, and certain I've not fully understood. Hopefully you, or someone else understands the essence of my confusion here, and can help clarify this.

Regards, and thanks so much,

Bryan

I'm looking for a 'mirror-like' camera filter. In the latest Esquire magazine there's an article on/by Chuck Close(artist/photographer) where he describes placing a mirror like filter over the lens that allows the portrait sitter to see themselves while looking directly into the lens. I think Spiratone made these ? Do you have or know of a filter like this, or a similar device (two way mirror) that has a hole in it for the lens to stick through ? Optical quality of course. I can be emailed at fh[dot]gross[at]sympatico[dot]ca -Thanks for any pointers.

Hi! I bought recently a Kenmoore refrigerator 8.50amps 115volts and 60herz. Now I have to moove back to Switzerland and would like to bring it with me. To make it short I dont know if it's sufficiant to just change the the voltage or do I have to change the herz as well (50herz is used in Switzerland). Also if I do have to change the herz is there a particular part that I could replace. What ever I have to replace where is the best place to get it from?

Hi Bill, I stumbled upon your web site while looking for kid-friendly info about kinetic energy. How wonderful it is to know that there are people like you out there in cyberspace who are concerned enough to get accurate science information out to all. As a teacher I am always trying to pass on the most accurate and up to date info I can get. Unfortunately we don't always have access to stuff that is right, so thanks a lot. Don't worry about putting it into lesson format, any teacher worth their salt can do that. JUST KEEP GIVING US THE FACTS... PLEASE!!!!

Regarding mutli-mirror sun-focusing furnaces: (http://amasci.com/amateur/mirror.html) Another method would be to get one of those satellite TV dish reflecters. Either paint the surface with a shiny paint, or better yet glue lots of small mirrors in. The focusing is already done! They come in all sizes -- 18 inches which are solid extruded sheet-steel, about 36 inch fiberglass, and about 10 foot with wire screen (The really old TV dishes) -- the focus is already set, and many people are trying to get rid of these older big dishes.

A very eclectic and quite raw site. It is not obvious what your unifying interest is - even so, I enjoyed seeing it. [The unifying interest? Why... to be weird. But if I'm weird intentionally, then it's false; a mere affectation. Yet if I stop trying, then societal pressure forces me back into normalcy. Instead I must skate the thin edge, allowing the interesting contents of my subconscious to blossom outwards undistorted, while still maintaining enough control that I don't fall of the high wire too often.-billb ] John Hewitt

If you could submerge say an empty sealed barrel that contained only air, and you could place it at the bottom of a lake or container, and then let it go, the bouncy would shoot that barrel up to the surface very quickly and very powerfully. If you tied or connected the power of that barrel to say a generator, you would produce electricity, etc. now as the barrel reaches the surface of the water, and if possible, you could make a sort of chain effect where the barrel at the bottom of the water is replaced again and again, those barrels would shoot to the surface. In theory you ca replace those barrels at the bottom of the tank, by gravity feed, IOW, enter the tank from the bottom which would enter into the water at the bottom of the tan, the barrels would shoot to the surface, then again fall (gravity) to the bottom of the tank, and so on. The problem is, and I'm sure solved by modern technology, the barrels (or chambers) could replace in a wheel motion, and create a inverse water wheel. Instead of water pushing the wheel, it would be bouncy pushing the water wheel. Good idea in theory, I never really built it. need a crafstman to do so..

Hey Bill. I was reading about your hover craft instructions and i think i know a way to propel it. You might could try making another little hovercraft and bolting it to the back and use a couple of hair driers to power it.And to steer it put a swivle bolt instead of just a regular bolt. And they're some good instuctions,too. A friend of mine one tenth place at the science fair. And I'm thinking about making one for a charity funtion..and i need some ways to make it look a little better. So if anyone has any tips e-mail me at Drattit at yahoocom (but please only if you'll be serious no jokes).Thanks.

Using less amps over longer time, incorporating both positive and negative current flow. Less damage to the heart when saving lives. Your site is great. Never thought a nurse would need to learn electricity concepts.

Well i was reading your site, specificly about airfoil vs angle of attack, both make sence to me, but as i see it the AoA makes more sence, an airfoil seams realistic only when you have a weightless wing, thus you have infinate wingspan....

But thats not why im writing you ( or rather all of you, as the case maybe) millions of ideas run through my head, on in perticular.........

Why cant we make humanpowerd aircraft i looked at this problem and decided its the weight vs lift, and the lift is speed vs wings

so i came to this conclusion, if we could make a glider to have a stall speed as low as 5 or 10 mph, then it could glide a little more, and even perhaps fly a little more then that ( if this reasong is flawed ( i dont care if its realistic, YET) please let me know why, or how) now i know personaly i could pedle my bicycle up to 27 MPH on the street, with proper gearing, but i figured a person with a propeller should be able to get atleast 15 on level ground.... assuming you have no wind, could get up to 15 mph with a very light glider, light passenger and equipment, then you might be able to fly, i also thought that the wingspan of most gliders would need to be doubled, but i havnt found information eigther way, also, how does AoA theory work with biplanes, it seams like they would interfere with eachother and not provide twice the lift ( which i thought they did) and if they do, then maybe a biplane glider...... its just a thought ild like to pursue....

Thank you all for your help! please respond with what can help me:) you can email me at simy2223 at yahoocom put the subject as "science questions and answers", this is my junk email, so spammers, have at it!

Yes, at what point does Microwaves go from EHF to Infrared?
The answer my firend is not blowin in the wind"
One Millimeter or 100 GHz, no ! Microwaves blend over at 3.9 millimeters . At that region the EW wave is effectively Photnic Radiation, that can be converted by a semiconductor material(GaAs) directly into a DC voltage(Gunn Diode)- just like a Solar Cell

>>"incoming EM plane waves and cause these radio waves to bend towards the tiny antenna. This increases the antenna's EA (effective area or effective aperture.) We can alter the coupling between the antenna and the surrounding space, but the total energy still follows the conservation law. The altered fields only change the "virtual size" (EA) of the antenna. "

I know you mdon't answer questions, but I was wondering if you have heard about that mysterious "schematic" inside a box where the symbol for the battery could be erased and the circuit would cease to function? Likewise, the circuit would operate once the battery was drawn back on the schematic. I have searched everywhere and can not find a reference to it... lc130ch("at sign")hotmailcom

I read the article about unwise microwave experiments, and now I know why my experment is not working Correctly. I took a 1KW megnetron tube out of a microwave oven (Not a good idea unless you know what your doing) and attempted to boil 5 gallons of water over a period of 20 minutes each time the container would explode be it glass or one of those 5 gallon water cooler containers. In theory you should be able to warm up the water from 70 degrees F to 120 degrees F in under 20 minutes, if anyone knows how I can keep the water a consistant temperature please let me know. Kent,

This site is SOO cool. I’m a VERY driven teenager and I am CRAZY about science. You know how kids when they're 4 or so ask why, what, when, who, how constantly? I never grew out of that, nor do I plan to no matter how much it annoys my father. I have a science project that I have the rest of the school year to do, but I’m having trouble finding a project that I’m really interested in. I am interested in astronomy and physics but really, experiments for those are either above or way below sophomore level. If you have any ideas off the top of your head, that would be awesome. I really like the plans for the hovercraft and thought about turning something like that into an experiment like testing out what size holes in the plastic skirt are best. If you have any small things like that you want tested out that are time consuming or you haven't gotten around to and are at least high school level, I would love to do them. If not, do you care if I do the hovercraft one? -Jewels email: coolgirl88cb at hotmailcom

Now this site remains as my home page and it has helped me as my stress therapy.. I have been through some hard times and this site has changed my life. Not only does it help me with my education in AP Physics class, but it teaches me many great things about life itself. It has helped me cope with my drug and alcohol problems, as well as my unstable mental problems. Every morning, I start my day with amasci.com, and god forbid if I don't start my day with amasci.com, my body shakes in nervous tensions all throughout the day. There ain't any pills or medications for my addiction for amasci.com, just the pure joy of visiting this site and exploring the wild world of science just gets me goosebumps all over and I shiver with multiple orgasms!!!I'm so serious that I can live without sex but not without amasci.com.

The concept below is similar to what I have in mind :

a negative ion generator emits a constant and widespread stream of negative ions,

air molecules become negatively charged,

generator emits more ions, which repel the negatively charged air molecules

thereby lowering air pressure.

http://amasci.com/freenrg/iontest.html

Build a low-mass disk-shaped device having negative ion generators around its rim and a large central foil disk on the bottom which is insulated from the rest of the device. Connect power supplies to the ion generators via an umbilical. Connect a large positive potential to the central plate. A region of negative ions will form adjacent to the positive plate, and a pressure gradient will appear. If the total weight of the device is low enough, the device will lift into the air and hover on top of its transparent negative-ion bubble. If a large enough device could be built, the power supplies could be placed onboard!

In the section with antigravity articles, there is one entitled "Space Warp 1," written by Charles R. Morton. Near the end of this article he writes, "In theory, a full-scale craft could be built, which could develop several tons of thrust and exceed SEVERAL TIMES THE SPEED OF LIGHT." Who was/is this guy? Did he know nothing about Einstein's special relativity, which states that NOTHING CAN EXCEED THE SPEED OF LIGHT? How could he have written THAT based on the apparent knowledge he displayed earlier in the article?!?!

3 research students, John Obik, Matthew Urquhart, and William Kalvinek are studying the S.F. contamination and are looking for possible environmental causes for the individuals that are contaminated by S.F. to display high anarchy particularly with motor vehicles. The 3 Project Probe 2003 members have their own vehicle they built in the research project called the PROJECT PROBE 2003 VEHICLE that they travel together in and the Project Probe 2003 vehicle has special 'S.F.L. MONITORS' inside each of the 3 members' personal compartments that measure the anarchy levels. Data is compiled daily. The graph printout from the Project Probe 2003 vehicle is updated periodicly online at this site. Possible environmental conditions Matt, John, and William are looking at is weather, temperature, atmospheric pressure changes, lunar cycles, planetary orintation, solar activity and time of year/intensity of solar energy as possible explainations for why the contamination is worse on some days and lower on other days.

I'm getting body sparks more often lately and I wonder if it's medically dangerous for me. How could I get rid of them? Thanks. Tassie

Used to be curious about ELF hum and uW hazards; these days I simply sleep on an iron plate, wear a foil cap, and smile!

I origionally entered your website via a web search query about one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th Century, Dr. Richard Feynman. Looks like you're doing a great job trying to explain science and math and debunking the 'educRATS.' Thank you for the time and effort you've dedicated to this website! Sincerely!
