It produces a permanent electrostatic charge in the surrounding space, just as a magnet produces a permanent magnetic field. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Jefimenko constructed and operated electrostatic generators run by atmospheric electricity. That can run on power transmitted through open air? Centrifugal forces at the ends were degrees out of phase, thus constituting a couple. And so are the motors. The strength of the force is at a maximum because the electret is close to the electrodes. This stratagem is limited by the available space.

Electrostatic motors also require very little metal in their construction and can use mostly plastic for example. The rate is equivalent to. The tinsel functioned as multiple needle points. The cure took about 3 hours.

A moment later, we lost count. Air conducts reasonably well at that potential. At an altitude of meters the antenna should pick up some 20, volts. After about a minute, we clocked some turns with a watch and found it was spinning at rpm. When adjacent plates carry charges of opposite polarity, the electret experiences a force at right angles to the slot and in the plane of the electret.

Jefimenko suggests that electromagnetic equations can be converted to their gravitational-cogravitational equivalent by replacing electromagnetic symbols and constants with their corresponding gravitational-cogravitational symbols and constants, [1] given in the table below. To make wiring simple, we used standard connectors on the Wimhurst collectors, and meter leads with regular banana plugs and alligator clips to hook up the motors. Over that past few years, aided by graduate-student Henry Fischbach-Nazario, Jefimenko designed advanced corona motors.

However, the greatest concentration is near the ground and diminishes with altitude rapidly.

A strip of plastic is placed between sets of knife-edge electrodes slanted to initiate motion in the desired direction. Franklin was not altogether happy with his motor. It olge merrily from electric power drawn out of thin air. Thus the thimbles were simultaneously pushed and pulled by the high-voltage terminals exactly as was needed to accelerate the wheel.

Views Read Edit View history. Jefimenko posits the following Generalized Theory of Gravitation.

Notify me of new comments via email. It was a great feeling. At higher altitudes the rate decreases. Thereafter a spark would jump from the high-voltage terminal to each passing thimble and impart jefienko it a charge of the same polarity as that of the terminal.

Run motors with atmospheric electricity. Two oppositely charged leyden jars — high voltage capacitors — were so placed that the thimbles on the rotating spokes barely missed the knobs on the jars see photo. As the electret moved between the attracting plates, however, the commutator switched the plates olrg matching polarity.


It operates at speeds of up to 12, revolutions per minute at an efficiency of substantially more than 50 percent. Jefimenko thinks that earth-field antennas could be built to extract viable amounts of it. Although it varies widely, strength of the field averages volts per meter.

Brown, these antennas have larger current potentials depending upon the radioactive source used alpha or beta source and ionize the air in the vicinity of the antenna. As Jefimenko explains, the force can be increased by adding both moving and fixed electrodes.

Yet there it is, spinning merrily. Unshielded electrets attract opeg ions from the air and lose their charge within hours or days. To check for dynamic balance suspend the motor freely with a string, run it at low speed and judge by the wiggle where a counterweight must be added.

A recipe for an effective electret material is 45 percent carnauba wax, 45 percent water-white rosin and 10 percent white beeswax.

Would you believe an electric motor made almost entirely of plastic? He received his Ph. What can I say? He received his M. He has succeeded in constructing demonstration motors that run continuously off atmospheric electricity. The effect, which is variously known as St.
