How much can it put out? 12,000,000 volt waves.
Beta is just electricity
Not really. Alpha radiation cannot even penetrate your skin.
Alpha is the concern any inventor should be cautious on.
This design is portable. Easy to pick-up and leave as long as you have something to give it juice.
How much can it put out? 12,000,000 volt waves. That is enough to get anyone by, however, there's a catch..
That claim, like the drawings, are plagiarized, but it appears the original author who's explanation is somewhat incoherent may be talking about electron volts which is not the same as volts:
How much can it put out? 12,000,000 volt waves.
What are volt waves?
For those who don't understand this stuff, don't worry, neither does the author, but volts and electron-volts are not even measuring the same thing. The former measures voltage and the latter measures energy.
WARNING: Tesla accidentally discovered that electric spark discharges in air, ignite and burn atmospheric oxygen and nitrogen, producing 12,000,000 volt waves. The oxygen and nitrogen, both below atomic number 19 are thereby transmuted into alpha and beta charges (stripped helium nuclei with +2 charge each, and electrons with -1 charges each) by the powerful radiation produced, having a voltage potential of 12 Mev. This is almost three times the Mev level of gamma radiation emitted by radium, it may well be the reason why Tesla did not publicise the device shown above, and should you decide to experiment with it, please be aware of the potential hazard of this radiation.
I take that to mean that he hasn't built one either, but it's clear that it needs a power source according to that description so I have no idea why the OP is talking about devices that can be used when the electricity goes out. This contraption still needs input to do whatever it does. I've seen other people who developed Tesla devices in their basement develop a nasty cough and probably lung problems because high voltages can produce ozone which can damage your lungs when inhaled in excessive amounts.
On the surface, this system would appear to be less than 100% efficient, in that the amount of power applied to the device to make it operate should be less that the amount of power drawn from it to drive useful loads. I am not sure that this is necessarily so.
That's a different device but it also has high energy sparks and that's what generates the ozone.
High-energy discharges create thicker discharges with fewer branches, are pale and luminous, almost white, and are much longer than low-energy discharges, because of increased ionisation. A strong smell of ozone and nitrogen oxides will occur in the area.
If you read the original source, for some reason freedomcommander didn't plagiarize the claim about UV radiation which is probably true. This is why arc welders wear goggles to protect their eyes from UV radiation, because electric arcs can produce UV radiation, but I'd be very surprised if it's emitting alpha particles like freedomcommander claims. With no source provided in the OP, it's hard to understand where freedomcommander got such an idea about alpha particle radiation.

But there is no radiation worth mentioning dissapated during this event. this was the destruction of the elements in the air by sparatic energy.

bet an oil company will buy up the patent and put it in an fridge
they will have an monopoly on such kind of devices...
shell for instense ...is now testing an engine in an car to drive on 1Lir gas from amsterdam to parish...
you really believe that that engine is gonne up the market???????
The vehicles are highly specialized and optimized for the event and are not intended for everyday use.
Hopefully the eyeball frying was just temporary.
I fried my eyeballs when I was in 6th grade. Fooling around with a carbon arc I made with the cores of a couple of dry cell batteries. Lucky I didn't burn the house down I guess.
I only used the one I bought so you know a lot more about the other types than me, but I know I didn't want to look at the arc without that mask.
Agreed, I have used all types of welders, my favorite is the new miller mig unit with the argon.
I think they guy who discovered them wrote something like "I think beta rays might be electrons", but I'm not sure if "radiation" is the most correct term to apply to electrons in an arc, since they seem to be strongly compelled to go in a certain direction (the path you see in the arc). I think of radiation as something that tends to "radiate", which description doesn't seem to fit a focused arc very well. In other words, when using an arc welder I worried about UV radiation, but I never worried about stray electrons (or beta rays) hitting me. I think I could see where the vast majority of them were going from the visible trails left in their wake.
Fun with electrons. Or were they beta rays?
any idee wat happend if you drive 200 km on 1 liter gas?????
The top performing vehicles are specially designed for high efficiency. Some vehicles use a coast/burn technique whereby they briefly accelerate from 10 to 20 mph (from 16 to 32 km/h) and then switch the engine off and coast for approximately 2 minutes until the speed drops back down to 10 mph (16 km/h). This process is repeated resulting in average speed of 15 mph for the course.
