Electrode comparison
« on: November 15, 2018, 05:35:40 am »
In this example the right electrode is at least twice as thick as the left.Both electrodes have negative 12v on them,the anode is hidden in the bottom of the container.
Im asking those who will watch it closely to the end because it takes a minute to accumulate some ions,to give me an opinion wich electrode seems to behave differently.
I understand its a really poor example being powered by a generic wall plug that put out 15 volts at half an amp with just enough baking soda to get a reaction lol yea it sucks but maybe someone else could give a more clear example.Id love to be able to see a full blown 22 amp 12 volt KOH
example with electrodes set up in the same fashion.

Also an example of simple participation or lack there of.
Alltho i was showing an example of Hermans magnetic storm from many years ago,no one has noticed ...i get that part,not everyone here is into Hermans research but the simple visual clearly shows the larger bubbles being attracted to the thinner electrode.
Why is it no one here cares enough to point out that 1 simple thing?
Over 1000 guests and not 1 dam person cares enough to observe and respond to such a simple question.
WWWWWTTTTTFFFFFFFF!
Happy Thanksgiving Dic*  heads !

i agree.
The participation of viewers is bad.
I ll guess many have given up...

it seems more mass has a bigger attraction?

Thanks for the great video and nice experiment!

Any free floating molecule would actually get attracted to  the nearest electrode by electronic polarization the electron cloud will be polarized and so the neutral molecule free to walk will go to the nearest or the electrode with higher electric potential!

an ion would only go towards the direction of the electric field..

i just saw the video and i like it a lot. i already did some experiments where the bubbles behaved like that and also some where noticeably the movement where more accelerated probably due to the molecules being in an ionized state..   

You have the anode on the bottom of the tank and those are two cathodes?

Indeed the electrode thickness could be some factor in my point of view...

when i studied electrochemistry at the fuel cell course i took at the  institute of Nuclear energy research IPEN i learned that the metals have a reduction potential that is related to how the electrons displace from the equilibrium inside the metal attracted to the dielectric itself  and how electrons are bounded to the atoms of the metal

i believe the thicker the electrode the more electrons will be there to displace... i dont know exactly what would result...

If we go this way.. i could tell you.. perhaps using a heavy metal like platinum or gold could do some interesting effect...

i was studying some chemistry and how the metals develop a potential on water

basically two metals of the same size material and volume insert in water will have 0 v of potential difference between each other but they will have a electric potential in reference to a platinum electrode siting on the bath... if they are not two platinum electrodes too of course..

thereto i imagine a bigger electrode even being of the same material will displace the equilibrium of potential... you can measure that by inserting a platinum electrode on water.. and measuring both in reference to it... of course you can also measure the potential between the two.. if there is a potential there is a difference...

i read some patents about this regarding using plasma to generate electricity by simply using two electrodes of different size or shape, area...

Yes they are both cathodes that you can see.They both are on the same ground connection.
They both are the same diameter,the only difference is the one on the left is thinner than the one on the right.
The anode is centered underneath the cathodes.Why would the larger bubbles  be more attracted to the thinner electrode?
