The Extreme Electrical Potential of Water

We have not yet begun to unlock the mysteries of water.

A brilliant experiment first performed by Lord Kelvin shows how a battery of extremely high voltages can be made with running water and soup cans. 10,000-30,000 volts can be produced. Ana amazing potential difference that will produce sparks.. yet very little current…

Can anyone answer how this is possible?

Here is another resource

    I’d need to gather more information before forming a theory: Plot the electric charge, and pH, in each receiving bucket against time. Also, does it make a difference if there is one reservoir or a separate (and insulated from each other) reservoir for each side?

    Victor Schauberger has the answer. Pure water has very little energy compared with deep well 4*C spring water. It is a complex phenomenon but is answered pretty in depth by Callum Coats in his book Living Energies, even going so far as to link dielectric phenomena to water in the atmosphere, and interactions between sun and earth. He goes into detail about it’s energy potential related to density, purity, maturity, temperature and many other factors. Incidentally, Victor and Walter were never able to develop the water drop experiment into a useable power device(which was a goal of theirs) probably because they were not Tesla…

    In the video they are using tap water. So the question is how does that ordinary water do that.

    The answer of how it works is based on the charge separation of water. Firstly, for this to work, the water dripping into the buckets needs to come from the same source, and that’s why he’s made it from one tube. Initially, when the water is first turned on, some of the drops need to have a separation of charge, meaning, one drop, on one side, is more positive or negative than the drop on the other side. When that is achieved, this static voltage “generator” will begin to function. As the two oppositely charged drops fall into the bucket, the bucket will take on that charge, one positive and the other negative. The cans will also develop the charge, because they are electrically connected to the buckets. Hypothetically, if the bucket on the left is negative, the can above it is positive because it’s connected to the right bucket. This positively charged can will influence the water in the drip by pushing away the positive charge and leaving only negatively charged water to drip. The opposite will happen on the other side. So we see a charge separation occurring in the water tube above the cans- only negative dripping from the left, and only positive dripping from the right. As the water falls into to the bucket, the charge on the bucket increases to a high potential. The limit to the voltage produced occurs when the charge becomes so high that the water dripping is attracted to the can it is dripping through, causing it to hit the can.

    This is a good explanation: http://www.newphysics.se/archives/fnysik/3_1/kelvin/
    Very cool trick. The water is not important… it should work just as well with metal balls in place of the water. The important thing is that it’s a stream of units separated by air, rather than a continuous stream of water, so so there’s no direct electrical connection between the bucket and the dripper above it.

    I’m not sure if it would make a very efficient hydroelectric generator, but Schauberger says it’s an important experiment to understand, so understand it we shall 🙂
