RE: [TeslaTurbine] Van de Graaff generator and absurdities beginning in modern physics
- Yes, physics is hilarious (and I do mean that literally). However, the small charges the Vander graph move are held on an insulating surface, and drug up against the electrostatic force. They are very much not free to move under their own at the direction of the electric force they experience. This makes a generator. If the process is reversed, you get a high voltage motor. A first cousin of the VDG is a wimshirst machine that uses plates on a glass disk and variable capacitance to drive the charges. This is pretty easy to understand if you really want to enough to think on it instead of just laughing because you do not get it.

Electromagnetism is considered the most trustful part of actual
physics. There are a lot of physicists contesting the special and
general theory of relativity, a small number contesting quantum
mechanics, but none is contesting the actual electromagnetism.
It is time to revive all old und dusted experiments from
electromagnetism and to provide new explanations for them.
In attached link, Van de Graaff generator is analyzed and the
inconsistencies and absurdities accepted by actual electromagnetism

It is hilarious how a exact science like physics is not able to
solve a simple low level problem: how is possible to add a small
charge generated in the ,,friction" process or injected from a
external potential to a sphere containing a greater charge after
few second of VDG generator working.
