An ancient energy source gets a second life to perpetuity.

An ancient energy source gets a second life to perpetuity.

I envisioned an electrostatic force splitting the water molecule in saltwater. This splits the molecule into its atomic components, H2 & O & in the next instant these same atoms re-join as a water molecule giving off a lot of heat.

The reaction will give off a lot of heat over and over in a chain reaction.

The reaction is through a DC current. I believe there are ways to speed up this reaction.

We should try varying the frequency of the DC current. I believe there is another frequency that will speed up the molecules splitting.

 To repeat,

Pass this electrical current through a solution of saltwater; and in that same instance the two elements will rejoin back into a water molecule.

Creating a never-ending cycle of splitting and rejoining. While at the same time the volume of water remains the same.

maybe I will start a topic on this.

What say you--?

If what you are trying to achieve is heat, then you got it while at the same time your source to produce this heat is not depleted in the process.

The trick is to find the right frequency that accelerates the water molecule splitting.

This is like a tuning fork. If you create the right frequency glass will shatter. But there is only “one” frequency that can do the trick.

decided to follow to wherever it goes

Have you never heard of "conservation of energy"?  The heat energy given off when the atoms recombine cannot be more than the energy required to separate them.

Yes, I am aware of the principle of a “perpetual motion machine” and the other, "conservation of energy". The idea proposed is neither.

The idea proposed is to use electrolysis to split the water molecule and the next instant in time recombine the hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom back to a water molecule which releases a lot of “heat”.

All I am trying to propose is a more efficient way that may enhance to electrolysis process. If the product you are trying to accelerate is “heat” and a new way to accelerate this process producing more heat, then your objective has been achieved.

I am not breaking the law of "conservation of energy".

This is not a perpetual motion machine.

In my view of things “energy” is matter in motion.

If the energy of rubbing two sticks together creates heat and this heat creates fire that warms you through the night, then no laws of nature have been broken.

Right there you tell us you do not know what you  are talking about!  DC current does NOT have a "frequency".

You are correct and I was wrong.

I have been searching for the reason why electrolysis is able to separate the water molecule from H2O to H2 and O.

If we can discover what mechanism that causes this split to occur we may then be able to use the splitting process to create energy by recombining the two (2) atoms, hydrogen and oxygen together


The reaction would be almost instantaneous.

The idea is to split the water molecule and then recombine the atoms repeatedly, over and over in a chain reaction creating enormous amounts of heat.

I have been searching for a new source of renewable energy and this is one idea I am not as of yet, wiling to forget.
