Virtually no corrosion with a basic electrolyte and stainless steel electrodes. Yes one can use ac and get a mix of gases but then one is dealing with a dangerously explosive product at all stages. It is much safer to keep the gases separate until the last stage, ie a gas mixer prior to the combustion stage. There have been fatal accidents in the US with the mixed gases.
Stainless steel electrodes with a strongly basic electrolyte of sodium or potassium hydroxide(neutral or acidic conditions lead to corrosion unless one is using platinum electrodes) and apply a couple of volts dc and you are good to go. Hydrogen is released at the cathode(-) and oxygen at the anode(+).
Please excuse my ignorance but what is "IPA"? To me it means isopropanol and i'm quite sure that is not what you intended(allegedly drinkable but NOT recommended). Cobra and some german beers rate high in my estimation.
You are all forgetting porter, the black stuff, as in Guinness. The colour, as far as I know, comes from a large quantity of malt used in manufacture. Beer is my favourite drink although I rarely exceed two drinks these days as opposed to my misspent youth when I drank all alcoholic drinks to excess.
I am aware of Klinefelters and other cases involving multiple copies of the sex chromosomes but as you say they are rare occurrences. I am horrified this retrodiction of past events in changing birth certs as demanded by pressure groups.
Hi Alan, with respect to your post #1 on this thread I agree totally with your remarks concerning "ex men". If one is born with xy, one is a man and always will be, regardless of medical interventions. Similarly if one's chromosomes are xx one is female and always will be. If I was to expound such ideas on social media I would be subject to virtual assassination by the hoards of keyboard warriors.
Hi ES, I read your post yesterday around midday but I was rather busy at the time so I did not reply. I certainly agree that Alan is an excellent contributor. However I doubt if I can be of any value as my semiconductor theory(50 years ago) was extremely rudimentary as opposed to semiconductor application. I have a query peripheral to yours and I hope I am not digressing too much: the permittivity of a material is a bulk property that is due to polarisation of charges within that material--does this have a real meaning at the atomic scale?, ie is it not just a case of vacuum permittivity+ whatever electrostatic effects are occurring locally? Another conundrum for me is why electron and hole mobility varies when a hole is effectively an electron moving in the opposite direction, step by step. Apologies if this is too much off topic.
Good morning, Alan. It's a beautiful spring morning here in Donadea, Kildare. Spring has arrived!. Anyway on to more serious matters: these programs just hoover up what info they can find on the web and as i'm sure you know there is a near infinite amount of rubbish spread evenly throughout the web. I would not trust AI for anything(Hamdani will have a conniption).
Hamdani, I don't want to get into a slanging match with you but I will give you one example: the magnetic field is well understood as a relativistic correction to the electric field and vice versa. Attempts to tie it in to gravitation are wholly incorrect.
I agree with Alan that Hamdani behaves in a gentlemanly manner despite my disagreement with his technical arguments. On the subject of Tesla and his quotes I disagree. Tesla was a brilliant engineer but he was totally out of touch with the rapidly advancing scientific knowledge of his era and this situation worsened with time.
We(the boss and myself) run a small scale cat shelter and do a small amount of tnr work. I invariably wash my hands after any cat handling: dry hands is a small price to pay to avoid toxocara, toxoplasmosis and other unspecified zoonoses.
If one is trying to debunk established science, one needs to have a deep and comprehensive understanding of the subject matter. It is obvious that you do not have that necessary understanding. Don't get me wrong, I am all in favour of attempts to falsify the status quo but to do so one has to be adept with the current understanding to challenge it.
Janus, I accept what you say regarding comets but my confusion remains. Lyophilisation is commonly used to remove water from solutions where heating may degrade a product. I suppose the real question is why do comets and other icy bodies not undergo sublimation?
