Well, the backwards understanding of electricity, that is.MrTwig wrote:Start with magnets. That is what started the understanding of electricity.
There are actually four kinds; you forgot IC (Impulse Current) and OC (Oscillating Current). These are the ones we "don't use" because they lead to all sorts of "energy anomalies."MrTwig wrote:There are two kinds of electricity that we use, DC (direct current) and AC (alternating current).
Electrons are a spatial rotation (cosmic particle). Since we cannot observe cosmic particles, the uncharged electron is perceived as a "hole" and is thought to be the "positive charge." A charge is energy, t/s, so t/s x s = t -- the charged electron appears to be the opposite of the uncharged, and is assumed to be the negative carrier.MrTwig wrote:Some material conducts these electrons easier then others.
Uncharged electrons do not repel each other, because it is the charge that does that. This results in two types of electricity:
Electric current, composed of uncharged electrons, that has a magnitude proportional to the cross-section of a conductor.
Static electricity, composed of charged electrons, that has a magnitude proportional to the surface of the conductor (the charges repel each other, so they try to escape the conductor by moving to the surface).
Electrons can also form pairs (Cooper pairing) that result in superconductive current, and that pair can also take a charge, which is a form of radiant energy.
You'd probably be better off with Basic Properties of Matter for electricity and the latter part of Nothing But Motion, that shows how chemistry really works.MrTwig wrote:Please see Chemistry for further details.
A battery is nothing but a really big capacitor, akin to the pressure tank you have connected to a well pump. Pressurize the tank/battery, and it will push electrons for a while--until the pressure is depleted.MrTwig wrote:We also found that by putting certain materials together we could make what we call a battery or storage device of these electrons. By increasing the size of the batteries we found that "work" could be done. That is the DC back ground.
Do you know how far those "balls" actually wiggle in a wire, at 60hz? 0.0000389 cm or 0.00002 inches. And in DC, that current "flows" at an amazing speed of 8.4 cm (3.3 inches)/hour--a real gusher of electrons!MrTwig wrote:What he found was that by moving the electrons at one end of a wire the other end would move at the same rate (kind of like that toy that has the metal balls suspended by two strings). If you look at this world as made-up of tiny balls in a sea of "ether" then you can see how we transfer energy by bumping or pushing one way or another.
I thought wavelength mattered more.MrTwig wrote:One of the other things that Tesla found was the frequency matters.
That tells you something about the nature of the EM photon--it has no location in the spatial coordinate system, because there are a limited number of locations that can be occupied for any volume.MrTwig wrote:If you check out frequency charts of what we call the electromagnetic radiation spectrum you will find x-rays, gamma-rays, radio, infrared and visual waves. It seems that each one of these frequencies has a different rate or speed but they are all able to be there at the same time. We only use the visual rays to see with. By the way, that is where photons come in to use, which is another story.
