Yes, makes total sense.
wait, no the 10K resistor is for calibration only. This is how I'm checking on how much power is needed to raise the chamber a particular temperature. and this data i will use to compare the "reaction" to the calibration.
so in my testing i will be taking out the resistor and replacing it with the test powder. in my case a Zeolite loaded with Pd.
this make sense?
It will be interesting to see if anomalous heat occurs with zero electrical input I am loving that your covering experimental ground that helps answer real questions about the LENR/Cold Fusion phenomenon.
Nano Palladium, very nice :) Huge surface area, should help I would imagine.
Very awesome stuff.
(Now in regards to my research)
I had to do a total re-design of my apparatus. I am waiting on the final components, which will all be here in the very near future.
The main thing I am having setbacks with is mentally muscling through creating a custom program that interfaces with my arduino and other hardware for the calorimetry... I am making progress on the daily and consider this one of my favorite/most interesting projects.
I am trying a Nickel/Hydrogen route (but plan on making my cathode kind of changeable, I have Palladium, I hope to run many experiments over time)
I will explain in much deeper detail when I receive the rest of my components in the mail.
I cannot wait to share my progress.
Thanks for creating this forum.
