Wireless Power: Electrolysis Floater Module First Test
Next video is a bit better: watch?v=0Z-pcI9ycWY I made an AC/DC receiver and put it inside a peanut butter jar. The AC output lights an incandescent bulb as usual. The DC output from the receiver goes into two stainless steel screws that stick into a white pill bottle. This is the electrolyte chamber, or electric buoyancy bladder (EBB). I filled this chamber with salt water dyed green, through the fill port on the bottom. The top vent tube is open for this demonstration. I put the module into the jar of water and weight it down with a weight. Eventually I will ballast the module for neutral buoyancy when the EBB is full. This way, when the EBB makes gas it will displace water and the module will float. A slow leak will allow it to sink when electrolysis power is off. So I should be able to control the ebb and flow of the module. The electrolysis electrodes are just screws. I will try to improve them and this should result in a lot more gas evolution and also faster startup. Here you can see the green electrolyte, dense salt water, flowing out of the vent tube when the wireless power is on. After a bit, the gas evolution is clearly happening. I was afraid to spark it… that is my only big glass jar and my housemate would kill me if I broke it. But eventually I will spark the gas to prove that it is hydrogen/oxygen aka HHO or Brown’s Gas.
