Several limitations must first be overcome. As the electret moved between the attracting plates, however, eletcrostatic commutator switched the plates to matching polarity. If you like clear edges, you can buff them on a wheel and the whole thing becomes transparent. The electret is mounted on a four-millimeter shaft of plastic that turns in jeweled bearings. This might also be called a gravimagnetic field.
When Franklin placed opposite charges on the top and bottom films and gave the rotor a push, the machine ran just as well as his first design, and for the same reason.
Apart from possible applications electrostatic motors make fascinating playthings. Thereafter a spark electrodtatic jump from the high-voltage terminal to each passing thimble and impart to it a charge of the same polarity as that of the terminal.

The electrodes set up jefimeno physicists call a corona discharge; their sharp edges ionize air molecules that come in contact with them. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: When the rotor was balanced and power was applied, the motor immediately came up to speed, but it shook violently. It represents a physical approach profoundly different from the time-space geometry approach of the Einstein electrostatoc theory of relativity.
Too much vector math in there for a thorough review.
It produces a permanent electrostatic charge in the surrounding space, just as a magnet produces a permanent magnetic field. Essentially the machine consists of a rimless wheel that turns in the horizontal plane on low-friction bearings.
Machines of this kind can be made of almost any inexpensive jeffimenko materials, including plastics, wood and even cardboard. Later, you can make the whole thing permanent by putting a little solvent along the joints. A hazardous charge can accumulate. Reviewing the jffimenko of electrostatic machines, Jefimenko came across a paper published in by Johann Christoff Poggendorff, a German physicist.
Jefimenko’s expansion, or generalization, is based on the existence of the second gravitational force field, the ” cogravitationalor Heaviside’s field “.

About a yard away electrotatic placed a sharp-pointed corona antenna and connected it to an electrostatic motor. You can power your motors with a laboratory high-voltage supply, a Van de Graff generator, or a Wimhurst machine or any other high-voltage source.
It is the kind of wire normally employed for interconnecting electronic components and is available from dealers in radio supplies.
Inhe was awarded the Sigma Xi Prize. Always ground the lower end of the wire when it is not supplying a load, such as the motor. Jefimenko thinks that earth-field antennas could be built to extract viable amounts of it. Even they can be contrived of metallic foil backed by any stiff dielectric. Franklin charged his jars with an electrostatic generator.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They can also operate from a variety of sources and range of voltages. Why not tap the field to supplement conventional energy resources?
Electrostatic motors are now classified in general by the method by which charge is either stored in the machine or transferred to the rotor. By continued experimentation Poggendorff learned that he should slant the teeth of the combs to spray charge on the glass at an angle. The earth is an electrical conductor. It twirled merrily from electric power drawn out of thin air.
Two oppositely charged leyden jars — high voltage capacitors — were so placed that the thimbles on the rotating spokes barely missed the knobs on the jars see photo. Electret Scientific, Star City, However, small radioactive source antennas may be used instead that have no threshold voltage and therefore no height requirements. Those who build the machine may discover, as I did, that the most difficult part of the project, balancing the rotor, is encountered after assembly.
The axial shaft that supports the cylinder on pivot bearings was cut out of a steel knitting needle. Static balance was achieved by experimentally adding small bits of adhesive tape to the inner surface of the aluminum foil that lines the cylinder until the rotor remained stationary at all positions to which it was set by hand.
Over that past few years, aided by graduate-student Henry Fischbach-Nazario, Jefimenko designed advanced corona motors. Although its measured efficiency is better than 50 percent, Poggendorff regarded it merely as an apparatus for investigating electrical phenomena. Pohl, displayed two yard-square metal plates mounted on the end of a pole. Evidence of that is the fact that EM waves are widely held to be propagated by the E field creating the H field and the H field creating the E field as it goes along.
Jefimenko gives both motors an initial charge from a 20,volt generator. Energy in this form cannot be drawn on directly for driving ordinary electric motors.
Jefimenko posits the following Generalized Theory of Gravitation. This page was last edited on 15 Decemberat Gubkin harnessed this effect to make a motor. It is conceivable that such motors could replace the complex installations now needed for converting jefkmenko high-voltage d. The discharge globes are traditional for high-voltage machines.
Some mechanisms not yet explained constantly pumps large quantitites of charged particles into the air.
It described an electrostatic motor fitted with a rotor that carried no electrodes.
