Dry Crystal Cell—The air humidity experiment.ASF
This is an experiment with the “Ibpoinless crystal cell” to see if air humidity is having an effect on it. My little oscilator “Penny” is attached to one of these “dry” crystalline cells and is sealed in a clear plastic container with desiccant packs to absorb the moisture from the air. I will be able to observe the led blink rate and also hear it on an AM radio. A voltage drop in the cell will cause a slow down in the rate. A voltage reading on the cell was taken before sealing the oscillator in the container so that I can compare it to the ending voltage. A day or two in the dry air environment should tell me if the cell is being activated by moisture in the air —or not.
