Can electric currents change the currents of electrolyte containing water(pool water) ?
Let's toss a plugged in toaster into the water and see what happens.
The theory you espouse only works if there is no resistance. Just look at Skydivers and cliff jumpers. The air provides resistance and water even more
You do not understand the conservation of angular momentum in a short term fall that a cat seemingly violates.. Obviously sky divers can fly around nd
change speed and all that.. I'm talking split seconds..
It was a problem in physics for awhile..
This guy could be doing something similar.. If you pay attention I said this isn't Special, but I do want to know exactly what it is..
Your toaster joke was immature. Too much military warped your humor? I understand a lot more about electric currents than I care to discuss here,
given the climate of the responses. A toaster would short circuit, got a better idea?
And More to the point Here
An electric current is passed through seawater in the presence of an intense magnetic field, which interacts with the magnetic field of
the current through the water. Functionally, the seawater is then the moving, conductive part of an electric motor. Pushing the water out the
back accelerates the vehicle in the forward direction.
The physics equation describing this propelling force is Fmag = I (L × B) where L is the vector in the direction of the current 'I' and its length is
the distance the current travels, B is the magnetic field, and × denotes the cross product.
MHD is attractive because it has no moving parts, which means that a good design might be silent, reliable, and efficient.
I'm not sure I want to go any more into this than I already have..
Those are the two things I would test.. Hint one involves body posture... One is a bit more of a pet idea I've been thinking about..
