Burning Saltwater?

I found this article in class today, and thought it was pretty interesting. a scientist discovered that by exposing saltwater to radio waves, it weakens the bonds in the water, and the hydrogen can be burnt.http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/11/can-saltwater-be-burned-as-fuel/

saltwater battery for R/C boat in saltwater? Answered

I Based it here:https://www.instructables.com/id/Water-Powered-Calculator/?ALLSTEPS  My plan is to put an exposed carbon electrode and an Aluminum Foil at the seawater while traveling to make it as the boat's battery  my problem is will I get Thousands of Volts that can be deadly or will i get just what I need  if the result is thousands of volts its the electric solution at some of the provinces here at the Philippines Thank you! -E

Saltwater Etch question - Rubber

Hey y'all, I have another question related to etching my iPod. I took it apart, and now have the aluminum housing with a piece of rubber (latex?) connected to it (the buttons). Do y'all think that the saltwater or current would have any negative effects on it? Thanks!

Should I post? (Well, not exactly)

So, this really isn't whether or not I should post an iBle, but rather how many of you are interested in it. I'm using the saltwater etch tutorials here and am going to etch my iPod shuffle (2nd generation). The etch will say "iMake" and if all goes right, I should begin to etch sometime today or tomorrow. So, I'll try to take quality pictures and all, and if anyone happens to have any tips for me, they would be appreciated! ;-) Thanks!

Free Energy... NOT From Saltwater!

This one's for Kiteman. Right after an independent cancer cure researcher in Ohio discovers that he can make saltwater burn, we get a story from the UK about a water heater with an efficiency of 250%-300%.The device seems to break the fundamental physical law that energy cannot be created from nothing - but researchers believe it taps into a previously unrecognised source of energy, stored at a sub-atomic level within the hydrogen atoms in water. The system - developed by scientists at a firm called Ecowatts in a nondescript laboratory on an industrial estate at Lancing, West Sussex - involves passing an electrical current through a mixture of water, potassium carbonate (otherwise known as potash) and a secret liquid catalyst, based on chrome. full story

Why do oxygen escape quicker in freshwater that has salt added than in freshwater?

I where told to give my fish a saltbath (half a teespoon salt added to a cup-250ml freshwater and stirred till it desolves and then added your fish to the cup) as I noticed he has finrot. But my question to the petshop guy was when do I know to take the fish out of the saltwater again as it is a freshwater fish. His answer to me was, as soon as he comes to the surface gasping for air... He said as salt in freshwater lets oxygen escape quicker out of freshwater... But my question now is, but why?? Please help me to solve this....

Salt Water + PVC + Time = Jellly? Answered

A while back I had made a HHO generator or electrolysis device.  I had run it a little bit and then left it for about two months in a bucket because it had a small leak.  Salt crystallized on the outside some and when I opened it, there was a large glob of some milky white jelly like substance, any ideas?

Watch water resistance? Answered

I recently got a new watch for my 18th birthday. On the back of it, it said "5 ATM". I looked it up, and supposedly it should be water resistant to 50 meters or 165 feet. However, all places I went to online said to only have it around sinks, "slight splashes", shallow water, and to not use it for snorkeling. I live near the ocean and would most likely use it for that; not for any real diving though. Shouldn't a 50 meter tested watch be able to handle a few feet of water, or is it because it's saltwater that it would not be able to?

Sanding Laser Etchings and Saltwater Etching Through Anodization ?s

I own an iPod Shuffle, 2nd generation, silver. It is very plain, and I've recently been reading up on saltwater etching. I want to remove the standard Apple logo from the back and etch my own text (it will either be "iMake" or "iBles", I can't decide). I've come upon two roadblocks, so far, those being: can I sand laser etchings (the Apple Logo) off, and can I etch through the player's anodization, or would I need to sand that off? I don't really care if it doesn't turn out perfect, or looks like a total mess. It's not like I paid for the thing. Thanks for any help!

LM7805 voltage regulator output 4 volts?

I have a LM7805 voltage regulator hooked up to a saltwater battery that outputs 16 volts, and the output is either slightly above or below 4. When I wire it to a 9v battery, it outputs a steady 4.98, but still will not power a USB port

I have an above ground pool. I want to buld a saltwater chlorine generator. Does anyone have plans for such a device??

I want to build a salt water chlorine generator for a 16 x 24 above ground pool. I am reasonably mechanical inclined and would appreciate any input from someone who has designed and successfully used such a generator. I currently have a sand filter system cleaning my pool and use large amounts of chemicals. I am a recycler and a green person who does not like to pollute or swim in chemicals. This salt water system sounds like a good idea. lets collaborate.

Confused about making iron oxide? Answered

I am making some iron oxide using the method with the 9 volt and nail in saltwater. Im a little confused however in all the thermite instuctables it says that the wire that bubbles the most is the positve wire. When i connect the (what the battery says) is positive to the nails and insert the negative into the water it seems like more bubbles are kinda comming off the stripped negative wire. The water is turning a little green(update-its not to green anymore) There is brown stuff floating at the top of the water.which doesnt burn my skin and smells like metal. I am using copper wire. Any suggestions?

How can I create a two-way internet video connection with remote control of an arduino controlled single servo motor?

Hi! I'm trying to develop a project idea that will enable me to connect to my home while I'm away to feed my saltwater fish. I want to be able to establish a two way live video connection and also be able to control a remote device using an arduino controlled servo motor that will deliver the food with a push of a button or click of a mouse. I'd like to be able to use my smart phone or PC to view and control the device. I have a Nexus 7 tablet at home that I plan to use to connect to the arduino to deliver the food and to see the fish tank. Any detailed input on how I can pursue this would be really appreciated. I am a newbie and need some expert advice. :-) Thanks for your help!

9kV 50mA tesla coil NST question. Why does the circuit breaker in my home trip when i plug in my NST?

Please someone help, this is my first tesla coil project, my setup: 230VAC 50Hz input ricci 9000v 50ma NST with a built in GFI (ground fault interrupter) but i bypassed the gfi succesfully .see pics safety gap  7,5 cm diameter pvc secondary 1000 turns #24 magnetwire (0,5mm) secondary 10 turns 8mm copper pipe primary (tapped at 7 turns) saltwater capacitor 16 green beer bottles in a bucket with a capacitance of 0,0122 uF or 12,2 nF (thegeekgroup bucket cap) static spark gap 28mm diameter stainless steel spheres as electrodes with oven fan (temporary, i am building a hyperbaric gap) 10cmx27,5cm aluminum toroid topload with a brass screw as breakout point RF ground aluminum rod 1,2 meter  When i tested the coil for the first time the spark gap was set on 6mm and i got 20cm or 8inch streamers without breakout point but the gfi on my nst tripped after a few seconds. i didn't know there was a built in gfi on my nst so i fooled around with my spark gap and safety gap and the tapping point on the primary hoping to get better performance. after a few runs the gfi started to trip very fast and i could only run the coil with the spark gap set on max 2mm, any bigger then that would trip the gfi on the nst. so i found out that it had a gfi and i bypassed it with thick wire. Then when i ran the nst i got the exact same thing but with my circuit breaker in my home. i have made a video on youtube that shows the problem here is the link: (please help) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piH44ohowyE please anyone help me! Any help or suggestion is very welkom!
