Re: test, ignore...is the list still up?
- I will try. It is a characteristic of a conductor of limited dimensions
that a wave will travel to the end of the conductor and be reflected back.
If there are successive waves and they are timed right with respect to the
dimensions of the conductor, the reflected traveling energy of a wave will
be canceled by the new wave and added to it. This forms standing waves.
This can be illustrated very nicely by waves in a rope hanging from a tall
building. It is the same for electrical waves. Since lightning set up
such standing waves in the earth, Tesla concluded that the earth had,
under some circumstances, the characteristics of a conductor of limited
dimensions. Since the earth acted as a conducting medium, Tesla thought
that with the proper generator, he could transmit energy without wires.
