This was split off from Oh...just a silly question

A thread belongs to the OP (original poster). Trying to take over someone elses thread is called hijacking, which is not allowed at All About Circuits. I have therefore given you a thread of your very own.

Light travels around the globe aprox 14 times per sec...(aprox)

Suppose the power supply is AC @ 14Hz... frequency is then directly proportional to the speed of light!

Then it is an antenna. You may not realize it, but that is pretty much how antennas work.

The US military uses ELF for submarines all the time. Try googling it.

So it is an antenna, it has a resonant frequency of (aprox ) 14Hz ...ish.
It is also an inductor, voltage leads current...

What size cap would be required (series ) to set the phase angle of E and I, to that of its resistance?

Current leads voltage achermm.

It would be poss to detect earthquakes etc.

3 wires one round the equator and 2 which go through the poles at 90 degrees would be 3 phase.

Kinda gone quiet round here...

Suppose (comrade) the wire is a loop in free space... with out the earth bit... what would its bits do for a given current of say X? (at 14Hz)

Probably because you are getting so far out there it really makes no sense. The OP asked a question, which was answered to his satisfaction (presumably). At this point we are done.
