I took transcript of the first video, over 8 minutes of it. And its quite enlightening.
Some pics as well.
---Look at the first 6 minutes of this video to get an idea of what we're going to be getting into
---2 27 Seth Putterman, University of California, Los Angeles: “The first time I saw sonoluminescence was in a darkened room. I was transfixed
to look at this spherical flask of fluid, and you look into the center and in the center you see a glowing blue/purple light, which could be seen with
the unaided eye.”
A Star In A Jar. A tiny drop of bright light contained in a liquid.
This star in a jar is made when a sound wave
is passed through a small bubble inside a flask of liquid and this sound wave makes the bubble do
something remarkable: first it expands, then it collapses.
And this collapse happens so violently that vapor molecules trapped inside the bubble slam together and heat up so much that bubble gives off an
inredible burst of heat and light, several thousand times a second, giving the appearance of a star.
What made the phenomenum so exciting was the temperature of this star in a jar. On its surface alone the light burns at 10's of thousands of
---4 31 Hiding under the rock is a pistol shrimp. And he's packing a lethal weapon. This crab is heading into trouble. Our shrimp is ready for a
fight. At first sight it looks like he's punching the intruder with his claw.
In fact, something much stranger is going on, something we can only see if we look again in slow motion.
That sound we hear is not from the claw itself, but from an amazing invisible force.
The claw snap happens so fast it causes a high volalicty water jet, which shoots forward at almost 60 miles per hour, fast enough to vaporize the
water and form a bubble. But this is no ordinary bubble. For an instance, its as hot as the surface of the sun. And as it collapses this vast
energy is released like a super heated shockwave, stunning or even killing its prey. The knock out punch comes not from the claw, but the super hot
power of a bubble!
---6 37 What he has tried to do is capture the intriguing effect he noticed in that vibrating boiler pipe and use it to create a totally new water
heater, one that works without any heat source.
His company now produces what amounts to a well engineered water hammer. It thumps and smashes the water into it, raises the temperature to boiling
point, or to steam, in a matter of seconds to replace household or industrial boilers. And they happen to call these machines pumps.
“What we have is a hydro sonic (sound wave?) pump that has the roter located inside that has holes bored in it a certain angles and depths, ranging
from a few hundred holes up to a few thousand depending on whether we want to make hot water or steam.”
The key to the machine seems to be the number and the design of the holes in the rotor. (James) Griggs has experimented with many different
combinations to get the best results.
The rotor fits tightly into a steel chamber and there is a very small gap between the two. Water is fed into the gap and hte rotor is sped rapidly by
a small electric motor. As it spins the water is pummeled and hammered through the holes. In seconds it flows out of the cylinder as hot water or
What's so extraordinary about such an ordinary looking machine is the claim that it is more than 100% efficient. More energy has been measured coming
out in heat or steam than the electrical energy needed to turn the rotor. The term for this is over unity. Scientifically this is supposed to be
impossible because it overturns the fundamental law of conservation of energy.....
---Just a side note, it seems that the pistol shrimp is overturning the laws of the conservation of energy by generating a heat equal to the sun
without having the mass of the sun.
It seems the sonoluminescence phenomenum creating more power out than in, is ok seemingly, because it is generating the heat and light = to suns and
stars without having the mass of the suns and the stars. Something else is going on!
