Hobbyist Science – LENR Part 2
|November 5, 2012||Posted by Jack Cole under Hobbyist LENR|
In a post yesterday, I introduced the idea of using an Android controlled programmable controller for exploring electrolysis heat production. I am presenting another chart here from an experiment that was run today for a longer length of time.
The notion is to demonstrate a technique for detecting high levels of anomalous excess heat with a minimal number of measures.
The idea here is to run multiple experimental runs (one for each individual component) and to compare the component results with the combined result.
It is quite simple to predict what would be expected to happen from standard theory. If one component produces a certain amount of change in temperature, and another component produces a different amount of change in temperature, then combining the two components by alternating back and forth between them should produce a temperature change somewhere in between the temperature changes of the separate components. Since we are alternating back and forth between components, we avoid synergistic or additive effects.
In the following experiment I ran the following procedure.
A – 12VDC ~.4amp for 30 minutes and allow cell to cool within 10 degrees F of the ambient temperature.
B – 12VDC ~.4amp for 30 minutes and allow cell to cool within 10 degrees F of the ambient temperature.
C – 9VAC ~.5amp for 30 minutes and allow cell to cool within 10 degrees F of the ambient temperature.
D – 12VDC for 60 seconds, 9VAC for 30 seconds. These currents alternate back and forth throughout the 30 minute period. Allow to cool to within 10 degrees of ambient.
You will notice that I repeat the A run for B. This is to develop an elevated baseline for the B, C, and D runs of ~+10F.
If alternating between AC and DC currents triggers AHE (anomalous heat effect), then change in temperatures for run D should be higher than the individual components of C and B. I outlined this in the previous presentation, but the longer run produced a chart that clearly exemplifies the absence of excess heating. The purple line for D falls in between the lines for C and B.
1. I am still seeing unusual temperature spikes and dips with runs using DC current. There seems to be some kind of interference with the temperature sensor.
2. Electrode composition (cathode – 8 standard US nickels connected together with a small rod of thoriated tungsten; anode – 4 stainless steel washers).
