just going back to Valentin Petkovs last video on finding resonance of water between electrodes and his oscilliscope shots:
How can his results be interpreted? I dont understand exactly how the scope shots are interpreted, so I will just use the important results he notes in the video.
He used one 4 inch cell ( concentric tube style like stan I assume) probably not 2 flat plates.
Gap between tubes is 2.5mm ( 0.0025m)
He finds resonance at 7.3mhz, 27mhz and 45mhz ( timemark on video 4:20 7:10, 9:03) and at 8:43mins he notes ac cell offset occuring.
These three resonant points he notes are shown by current decrease and 90deg phase shift in the two waveforms he is plotting.
Lets use the wave formula and find out the speed of the waves across the water gap:
7.3mhz = 18,250 m/s
27mhz = 67,500m/s
45mhz = 112,500m/s
So the question I have is, does each resonant point he found represent one wavelength, or does resonance occur at half wavelength? The above results are for one wavelength, but I think resonance will occur at half wavelength i.e. the gap of 2.5mm is really the half wavelength of the wave traversing the gap.
So keeping this in mind the speed of the wave across the gap ( using 5mm as one wavelength since resonance , I think, occurs at half wavelength) gives:
27mhz = 135000m/s
45mhz = 225000m/s
So if I'm doing the maths correctly, and if i'm understanding this correctly, those are damn fast waves, I'm guessing much faster than ionic transfer that is, much faster than the speed at which h+ and oh- will transfer across the gap. Thats just my guess, I still have to confirm the speeds at which h+ and oh- transfer through pure water, but I'm pretty sure it much slower than these figures.
So what exactly do these figures represent? They are still way way higher than the frequencies stan was using, he was in the lower khz range.
Valentin also mentions when there is phase shift the water is acting like a capacitor, which is another aspect I dont really understand.
So what exactly has Valentin discovered and how do we relate it to stans work?
The only analogy I can think of is this:
electrical waves ( em waves??) in copper wire, the actual wavefront transfer is very fast, a wave travels through the copper wire a bit slower than the speed of light, but the actual electrons themselves travel very slowly.
Perhaps this is a bit similar, there is some type of wavefront traverses the water rather quickly
( much slower than electrical wavefront in copper wire) and the ions in water, similar to electrons in copper travel very slowly.
( just to compare to acoustic waves in water, their speed is 1484m/s, much much slower)
