High Voltage on Clover Seeds, Etc. Over 8000 Volts and 12,000 Volts of AC Electricity.

Hello there.

I am doing research on what happens when High Voltage Frequency pulses from a Jacob ladder have on clover seeds? Does a specific dose of EMF slow down or Kill the clover? That the million dollar question and that what I am here to find out.

Warning: 12,000 volts 35 mA AC and 8000 volts 20 mA is considered HIGH VOLTAGE. Use extreme caution when working with and Never work with the spark gap while the device is ON!

Never Operate High Voltage Supply if you are impaired in any way or tired. This increases the risk of electric shock or even death! High voltage can easily with spark gaps cause electrical fires too!! So fire safety protocols - must be made in place. Use High pressured CO2 can be meant for putting out an Electrical fire.

Here some info on a Jacob ladder but this acts as a spark gap/Jacob ladder!

Here another one.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Introduction to High Voltage.

High Voltage does many things. One it an EMF which damages DNA, changes mRNA or scrambles it, Produces free radicals in the tissue of the plant or any life form dependant on the dose. The frequency is not strong enough to blow up a computer (Think EMP) since the current is 35 ma, not 60 ma.

In order to do that you would need like 7 to 9 kV and currents near 50 to 60 ma. My devices are operating way below that (nearly half) so the EMP is not an issue. Still, it is dangerous and if you touch it while it is ON it could Kill you!!

Step 2: Protocol.

Set seeds on Soil in an L section bricks and connect the High Voltage. The Right center of L had the 8000 volts 20 ma and the bottom had the 12,000 volts 35 ma AC. For every set, they run for 60 minutes and are grown for a week with watering twice daily the clover in the soil.

Here the EMF meter reads

3500 volts per meter squared for 60 min on clover: Death.
1167 volts per meter squared for 60 min = Death.

566 volts per meter squared = death.

410 volts per meter squared = Growth.

233 volts per meter squared= growth.

Control = growth.

They were according 1 cm, 3 cm, 5 cm, 6 cm and 8 cm away from the spark gap the clover seeds.

Step 3: Data and Results and Discussions.

Here some original Data on several good Ave results of Volts per meter squared and cm away from spark gap (45-degree angle).

3500 volts per meter squared for 60 min on clover: Death.
1167 volts per meter squared for 60 min = Death.

566 volts per meter squared = death.

410 volts per meter squared = Growth.

233 volts per meter squared= growth.

Control = Growth.

Here a Pic of a graph from Excel. The cutoff point is 411 volts per meter squared for clover survival.

Results:

The graph is a quatra polynomial. As distance 45 degrees increases at 6 cm away the clovers grow this is equivalent to the total of 410 volts per meter squared from two transformers. High pulses of 3500 v per meter squared from two transformers gave the most killing power.

This works by causing free radicals in DNA, mitochondria, cell walls of plants, etc. Also, the electromagnetic field interrupts bonds between (Hydrogen bonds) in base pair nucleotides.

The exposure time was 60 minutes and they (seeds grew each time for a week. It clear that this type of EMF blast causes Random mutations.

Discussions:

Random mutations and gene, chromosome damage and Cell and tissue damage due to EMF are obvious in my work and other trials with High Voltage. Some Random gene mutations if the clover plant survives reverses. Random mutation even (Indirectly as with this) rarely introduces dangerous modified genes into the environment. It too Random.

I wanted to grow and test other plants but clovers are very small (sensitive to heat, chemicals, etc) and grow within a week. Yes, It would be Interesting to see if clovers can resist a specific dose of EMF but all my transformers died and I don't want to spend more money on them.

High voltage like 6000 volts 1-5 ma can have the Opposite effect - enhancing growth of plants.

It known weak EMF from Powerlines (110,000 volts in Quebec) can actually INCREASE plant growth. So it can trigger cell metabolism too. It dependant on the strength of the EMF (Voltage (kV) and Amps (mA) and distance and exposure time.

Each plant structure and Metabolism pathways to convert CO2 and water into Sugar, (Photosynthesis) is different. Each type of plant from Monocot to Dicot are different too. Clover is a Monocot so if I used a Dicot plant it would have different effects!

    Will be in 500 ml flasks and bottles that seal from air -- Lactobacillus and allow air for the Mold. Mold may resist EMF without copper in it too. Interesting result that I look foward to discovering. Will take a month or so to complete.

    Correction. I will only grow Mold and Lactobacillus Probiotic Mix. One tablet for 100 ml. Add double the sugar and half that. 12 pills = 24 uses tho. Methyl Red as an Indicator was used but bacteria converted it into a carbon source (fuel) so I am measuring turability of water with bacteria and mold and with bacteria pH.

    Next, for a Project in a few months, I will show what happens with 12 kV 35 mA Solid state transformer Neon with alligator clips and produce an EMF -2000 volts per meter squared on plates, etc of bacteria (lactobacillus types), baker yeast, and Mold. The mold will be done first since it requires oxygen but the others will be anaerobic without oxygen. Yes- yeast can use both oxygen and no oxygen. It will be tested with Silver-Copper mesh metal mixture and compare 15-30-45 minutes with three microbes (yeast, bacteria, and mold). The agars for yeast and bacteria will have small amounts of Phenol Red as a pH indicator in it. The yeast will have bread powder flower, etc as a recipe to make it grow on wheat. Well the mold will grow on Cocoa sugar agar.
