REGISTER or LOGIN seawater will ignite and burn when exposed to radio frequencies. Talk about an abundant resource!I've got the radio turned up to full volume (the neighbors are happy) and been trying to ignite the saltwater fish tank (but the fish are distraught)- no results yet?
My fish are now wearing earplugs! But no ignition yet.[diagram=274_0]More on this story from the Pittsburg Post-Gazette:"the salt water isn't burning per se, despite appearances. The radio frequency actually weakens bonds holding together the constituents of salt water -- sodium chloride, hydrogen and oxygen -- and releases the hydrogen, which, once ignited, burns continuously when exposed to the RF energy field. Mr. Kanzius said an independent source measured the flame's temperature, which exceeds 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, reflecting an enormous energy output."

Talk about an abundant resource!I've got the radio turned up to full volume (the neighbors are happy) and been trying to ignite the saltwater fish tank (but the fish are distraught)- no results yet?I saw this the other day, and was curious, but I haven't seen anything peer-reviewed yet. Rustum Roy is a reputable scientist in certain fields, although he does have a few loopy ideas, from what little I saw of his website.This is NOT the same idea as you see in web videos where water is burning and we're supposed to get enough energy out of water to run a car.This idea does have some theoretical basis, although it is unlikely to be of practical use any time soon. Radio frequency (RF) radiation is a VERY broad band of radiation, so the likelihood of it falling within the very small range emitted by radio stations (NOT by your radio, which emits mostly sound waves) is slim.The main problem I see is one of power consumption. RF radiation is very low energy - the lowest in the entire electromagnetic spectrum. As far as stimulating molecules, RF radiation is responsible for stimulating to higher rotational energy states. On the other hand, microwave radiation (which overlaps the RF band) is also low energy, and stimulates molecules in the same way that RF does. Who would think that it could be used to boil water? The thing is, you have to have just the right frequency to do it.Dick
If this thing works, there still exists the reality that the energy that is available in the hydrogen generated, had to come from the radio waves to begin with. So that the system does not generate energy, it is just a new way of doing electrolysis, and energywize is just as useful (or useless) as is that process.
