    Hydroelectric power power plant

    I would have to agree with the previous post. The higher the water is dropped from, then the more time the water will have to be affected by gravitational acceleration. Due to this principle, the water will be faster as it strikes the turbine if dropped from a greater height. That is why we see...

    Powering a Tesla Coil with a 12 volt battery--help--

    Then that must be what the driver circuits are that I have seen are the more in depth Tesla coils. These circuits would include a 555 timer which is the switching that zoki may be referring to. And also would explain why most people were using these ignition coils with AC current instead of DC...

    Powering a Tesla Coil with a 12 volt battery--help--

    I believe the breaker is only acting as a switch. I did not have a switch when performing my testing.

    Powering a Tesla Coil with a 12 volt battery--help--

    So I have been wanting to build a Tesla Coil for a while now, and I did not want to make a large one, just enough for a 4 or 5 inch spark. That being said I began searching the internet for designs when I stumbled upon the 12 volt battery variation. The idea is that the 12v battery would drive...

    Potassium Carbonate + Water Reaction

    Latley, I have been trying to conduct an experiment dealing with Potassium Carbonate and water. But first I need to get everything down on paper. So, what is the reaction between water that is 145 degrees and 30 grams of Potassium Carbonate? Would it help if I put the PC in the water and then...

    Is this a shockwave?

    According to a direct definition: Yes it does seem that there is a shockwave visible from the right cannon blast. But it does interest me that you have labeled it as a concussion wave. Heres the definintion:http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/541339/shock-wave Hope This Helps, Kalrag

    Question about the release of electrons

    Latley, I have been doing some internet surfing on the release of electrons from their obit of an atom. I just have a few questions. What is it called when electrons are released from their orbit? How much energy does it take? What are the diffrent ways electrons can be released?

    Electromagnets Repelling Metal

    Now say I did change the word magnet to "wire" or "conductor". Could you explain how that would work?

    Electromagnets Repelling Metal

    I have a small physics book that states that if you run electricity throught a magnet it will repel metal. I just want to know if this is true.

    Inhaling Hydrogen+Oxygen

    Just a quick question; if someone was to inhale two atoms of Hydrogen and one atom of Oxygen, say from a Hydrogen Fuel Cell where it splits water, would it be safe or would it cause health problems if you inhaled it for a period of time?

    How to build a hydrogen cell with nafion

    I dont know about creating a hydrogen feul cell with nafion, but I did create a Hydrogen Fuel cell using platinum coated nickel wire and it was very successful. Here is a site that might help:http://scitoys.com/scitoys/scitoys/echem/fuel_cell/fuel_cell.html

    Electrical Discharge Drive

    Lately I have had an idea for a propulsion system. It would use rapid high voltage electrical discharges to create thrust. Now if it was strong enough and made correctly could this be an efficient form of thrust? Would it work?

    Manipulating/Shaping Magnetic Fields

    I have had a question pop up latley. Can magnetic fields be somehow shaped or manipulated in anyway? Instead of just their regular form of an oval could you direct it to a diffrent shape? Just asking.
