On the Nature of "Hidden Momentum"

or rather, its non-existence.

Photons carry momentum. So do all other field mediators that I have heard of.

I know other entrepreneurs without adequate funding: it is VERY hard in this climate to get venture capital.

The heat of fusion of water is 241.83 kJ/ mole. 1 MW is 1000 kJ/sec, so 4.135 moles/sec. This would be just over 8 grams of hydrogen, and some 65 grams of oxygen per second. The design I have seen, though, has the nickel in a hydrogen atmosphere, that is, it should have a pressure of hydrogen, but n...

This paper appears to offer some insights to a mechanism for cold fusion. At least the theory comes from some experimental evidence. ref http://www.journal-of-nuclear-physics.com/files/Cold%20nuclear%20fusion.pdf The paper is interesting, but not applicable to the Rossi reaction, since it deals wit...

You are an idiot. I have funded myself, as have all the other people I know in the Tea party. I read so far as "Koch brothers" and didn't bother to read the rest. Interesting piece fantasy ranting isn't it. I find it amazing that lefties always have to try to find the bogeyman leaders eve...

Most drug users are not junkies, but ordinary folks who happen to like that recreation.
Decriminalization would "fix" 95% of the drug "problem" overnight, and then the remaining 5% who are junkies would be destigmatized and able to get rational, sane help.

Well... no - if Rossi can make energy with inputs that would be unable to make that amount, I don't care if he has a black box and people who disassemble one can't figure it out.

The good thing about LINUX is that a sufficiently motivated person CAN make a change to the OS to correct a security risk, on their own. I just don't see the everyday user ever doing this though and I don't blame them, this is a ridiculous request for an everyday user. That just means the everyday ...

Anything that can reach orbit, of necessity, can de facto be used to do a ballistic or semi-ballistic trajectory to anywhere on the planet.

Are the Iranians going to claim they have the technology to make the sky blue now, too?

The good thing about LINUX is that a sufficiently motivated person CAN make a change to the OS to correct a security risk, on their own. But the concept of an OS as a monolithic block is wrong: there are multiple programs, multiple modules, all likely written by different entities, often not even fr...

We have been arguing apples and oranges. When I say 62Ni has the highest binding energy per nucleon, I am also saying that 62Ni has the highest binding energy per mole. Not apples and oranges at all. A mole is just a number, the number that happens to turn nuclear mass into grams. No added data pla...

Really, Dan, please stop. Wait until you have taken a modern physics class to contribute again. You are showing confusion. There is a "ballpark estimate" stability formula, or atomic mass formula, which is the same thing. This was worked out in the 1950s, the term is "liquid drop mode...

That's the single-engine thrust. GEnx can produce about 75,000 lbf max, for a four-engine total of 300,000 lbf.

Yes, of course. I'll fix my older post.
