Electrosonic Electrolysis

This device may enable cars to run on water.

Electrosonic Electrolysis

The above illustration shows how a combination of pulsed high voltage/low amperage electricity, microwave energy and ultrasonic vibrations may result in the efficient production of hydrogen and oxygen gas from water. The device could be used as a constant source of hydrogen to fuel an internal combustion vehicle, preferably as a hydrogen injector at each cylinder. In other words, this device is intended to enable cars to use water as fuel, as well as power generators and provide essentially free, non-poluting energy for the entire world. Even if this system is less than 100% efficient most of the power requirements to propel a vehicle or spin a generator can be derived from water, dramatically reducing fuel costs and pollution. For example, jet planes with solar panels on the wings could use water as the only fuel source and produce no pollution at all.

Water (H2O) is made up of the elements hydrogen and oxygen. Both are used as rocket fuel. You may recall that the Hindenburg airship was filled with hydrogen gas and a spark caused it to burn to the ground in just seconds. Oxygen is required for any flame or combustion to occur. Hydrogen contains 2 1/2 times more energy than gasoline.

When an electrical current passes through water, the hydrogen and oxygen become separated and escape as gasses. This process is referred to as electrolysis. You can demonstrate a simple form of electrolysis by holding the connection end of a nine-volt battery in a glass of water. Tiny bubbles will begin to form on each electrode, oxygen on the positive terminal and hydrogen on the negative. Higher voltages will cause the gas to form much more rapidly.

Microwave ovens operate by using electromagnetic (radio) waves to vibrate the water molecules in food at the reasonate frequency of water, which is roughly 42 khz. When objects vibrate at their reasonate frequency their structures become unstable. At ~42 khz water molecules begin to lose their bonds and the hydrogen and oxyen atoms separate into gases. If a lit candle is placed inside a microwave oven along with a small amount of water, within approximately 10 seconds after turning on the microwaves the hydrogen and oxygen gases being released will be ignited by the open flame and produce an explosion. (This is obviously a dangerous experiment so please don't try it yourself.)

It is also possible to separate H2O into hydrogen and oxygen gas using ultrasonic vibrations. "Ultrasonic" refers to vibrations occuring at a rate higher than the human auditory system can perceive, and 42 khz is about twice as fast as the highest frequency a person can hear.

These facts indicate that it may be possible to build a motor fueled by water. A battery would produce electrical output which would be used to separate the water into hydrogen and oxygen gases. The gasses would then fuel an internal combustion engine (or recharge a fuel cell) which would propell a vehicle, spin a generator and recharge the battery. If the engine produces more energy than is required to separate the water into gasses, the energy crisis on this planet will be over forever.

The critical element is the efficiency of the gas separation process. Normal electrolysis requires 3 times as much energy as can be generated by burning the gases, which means that a vehicle using such an inefficient gas separation process would stop moving when the battery became discharged.

The drawing above illustrates my design for using three different methods of separating hydrogen and oxygen gas from water: ultrasonic vibrations, microwaves, and plused wave electrolysis. A hollow metal dome is attached to the body of the device via a flexible material. An electromagnetic coil is mounted beneath the hollow metal dome, and a small iron core is attached directly to the dome and positioned inside the electromagnet. An electronic pluse generator is used to send current to the electromagnet at roughly 42,000 times per second. Each pulse of electricity causes the iron core inside the electromagnet to move, which in turn vibrates the hollow dome. The dome is surrounded by water, which will vibrate at the same frequency. This vibration will cause the water molecules to disassociate into hydrogen and oxygen gas. (Some literature indicates that water will disassociate at frequencies near 2.4mhz so this device also assumes that possibility.)

At the same time, high voltage/low amperage electrical current is passed through the water, between the dome and the outer (metal) wall of the device, in pulses occurring at roughly the resonant frequency of water. It is well known that water will separate into hydrogen and oxygen gas in the presence of an electrical current (electrolysis) but it generally requires 3 times as much electrical energy to produce hydrogen than is available from burning the hydrogen. I believe that efficiency may be increased when using higher voltage at low amperage, and also when the electrical current is pulsed through the water at the resonant frequency. The combination of both physical vibration and high voltage electrical pulsing should result in an even greater level of efficiency. The frequencies of both the vibrations and electric pulses can be randomly and continuously adjusted to slightly above and below the resonant frequency to produce "discordant" harmonic interference to further assist in molecular disassociation.

When electricity passes through a wire an electromagnetic field is produced. When the current is switched on and off or changes polarity rapidly the electromagnetic field becomes radio waves. Microwaves are radio waves operating in the microwave part of the electromagnetic spectrum. In this device the electrical current is pulsed through the shell and water at ~42khz. This produces microwaves which further enhance the efficiency of molecular disassociation. It may be possible to shape the metal body of the device to focus the microwaves more directly on the water.

The thechnology described here is really quite basic. An automotive ignition coil can be used as the transformer to turn 12 volts from a car battery into 30,000 to 60,000 volts, and a speaker from a computer or car stereo can be modified to create the electromagnet and iron core assembly. I imagine the pulse generators can be built by anyone with a basic understanding of electronics.

Another option which might improve efficiency would be to heat the water to just below boiling as it enters the device. Molecules vibrate faster as heat increases, and as water nears the boiling point the molecules bounce against each other with so much force they begin to separate from each other and escape as steam. It seems likely that the hydrogen and oxygen atoms may be tend to break apart more easily at higher temperatures. An automotive cigarette lighter could be used as a heat source if the temperature were controlled, but producing heat with electricity uses a lot of power and could end up reducing efficiency.

Adding salt or some other electrolytic chemical to the water may also improve efficiency.

It is uncertain whether this device would be efficient enough to power a motor vehicle using water as a fuel source, but it is certain to be more efficient than the standard electrolysis process of placing two electrodes in water. From the available literature it appears obvious that water fueled motors have been in existence since the 1960s but the inventors have been murdered or silenced in other ways. The oil industry is the largest business in the world and generates billions of dollars in profit every day, so there are powerful forces determined to prevent devices like this from being developed. If you manage to get something to work well, my suggestion would be to publish the technical details broadly and agressively, and hope for compensation by understanding philanthropists.

Bob Lazar demonstrates the electrolysis process and shows how he stores the hydrogen in fuel cells to power a Corvette. This system does not generate the hydrogen on board without an external power source, but the following two videos show vehicles which do.

Daniel Dingel's Water Fueled Car
Video explains how this Pilipppine inventor has been building cars since 1969 that run on hydrogen and oxygen separated from sea water on the fly.

Stanley Meyer
This Video talks about Stanley Meyer's electrolysis system which is reported to create 1,700 times more energy than it takes to make it run. He claims the dune buggy shown in this video could go from New York to LA on 22 gallons of water. Stanley Meyer was murdered (apparently poisoned) in 1998. Another person associated with new energy sources who was murdered is MIT professor Eugene Mallove, founder of a non-profit called the New Energy Foundation and proponet of cold fussion energy systems. And then there is Thomas Moray who invented a device in the 1930s which produced 55 kilowatts of electricity from radiant energy from space, who was shot in his lab after a government employee smashed all his equipment.
