Neat. I can think of a few applications for this (Soviet sub not included)...
It was neat. I think the main problem is electrode erosion and fluid disassociation products from the high electric fields needed for practical pumping.I didn't say it was. It's the first time I've seen a practical experiment demonstrating the effect. I thought it was neat.
He showed you how he constructed the apparatus -- down to polishing the acrylic. Prove it to yourself: duplicate the experiment. That's how science works.If it was such a good demonstration.......why isn't everyone on the same page.
I heard a story.........but saw no movement or proof of his words.
Why not a close-up or split screen on those stand pipes? Or colored water?
I think he is lying.
Agreed. Double 'DI'd water is a nearly useless material to move if you are trying to do something useful.It was neat. I think the main problem is electrode erosion and fluid disassociation products from the high electric fields needed for practical pumping.
I missed the magnet part.The explanation is Magnetohydrodynamics. the magnetic field created by the current flowing through the water makes it move. Osmosis was not involved as any part of the mechanism of pumping. Not a new discovery at all. There were experimental submarines using that for propulsion back in 1965.
Ultra pure DI water pumping is a very important component of material processing from high voltage electrode cooling to wafer processing. The problem is the required rate of flow for industrial systems. Regular mechanical pumps can deliver high flow rates at the needed working pressures for decades.Agreed. Double 'DI'd water is a nearly useless material to move if you are trying to do something useful.
OTOH: It may be possible to devise a method to use DI as a working fluid, and transfer the energy to a more useful substance without cross contamination.
Time for a new monitor! Watch at 1080p, right about 2:44 it's very clear. And later he puts a pressure gauge on it.The only water I saw move....was from the faucet. One terrible demo.
