Hm, I guess microwaves are what you mean by "heating" .. exciting the molecules...

Hm. What about collapsing the standing wave found in the resonances of subatomic particles, by inducing a superconductive state on the material in question and then introducing an inverse wave?


You're overworking the star trek technobabble generator.


Is that just a way to discredit me because I'm onto something?


Well the bonds between atoms vibrate at certain frequencies, and if you tune a laser to be in resonance with that particular atomic bond, you can disrupt it -- literally shaking apart the matter at the molecular level. You could even be selective enough to say, break only specific atomic bonds within a structure.

That might make for a pretty sweet weapon if the power requirements weren't a problem.

No sound in the vacuum of space ...but the sound "pulse" wave fequencies attacted and/sound could be felt.

In most cases, I'm pretty sure the qm resonances you're speaking about just end up dumping excess into the next higher mode, or into phonons if it's a solid structure.

But maybe, it's just not sound. Sound is a big, crude instrument at even the molecular level.

No. No they couldn't. Because you need a medium for compression waves to propagate in, and you don't have one.

BTW, it has nothing to do with 'frequencies'.

As bedlam said, no you wouldn't.

That pulse you feel is the same thing that produces a sound that you hear -- and that is the compression of the medium.

When you feel (not just hear) a thud in your chest from a sound, what you are feeling is a wave of air being compressed. When you feel someone jumping on the floor next to you, you are feeling a compression wave moving through the floor.

There is no "material being shot out" by the source of the sound, but rather the sound uses that material in front of it. The crowd control device in that picture is not shooting material out of it that someone can feel, but rather it is pushing and pulling the air in front of it in such a way that makes people feel that compression of air and hear the sound produced by it.

No air (or other medium), no sound/feeling.

Thanks for the explanation. Best, MS
