D'you mean, I'll find that others saying such behaviour is due to something irrelevant? Of that... I am quite sure!!!Hec031 wrote:Feel free to research the subject matter and you will find what I'm saying to be the case.
I've stuck a balloon to the ceiling many times by rubbing it on my shirt. Not sure I can see how this is different. Again, maybe it's just me, but I'd have expected it to do something like this!Hec031 wrote:It's unusual because many have tried to make this happen with an asymmetric capacitor device and have failed, except for my effort.
No. Sorry. I can't see any forces. I have only the usual 5 senses. One includes being able to see mediating particles of the electromagnetic force, but not the force itself. That's about the extent of my mortal senses.Hec031 wrote:The point of the video was to demonstrate that if done correctly an Asymmetric capacitor will produce a visible force
I can see a deflection of the suspended part. I'd guess that was hanging on around a 20cm line with a deflection angle of 1 degree or so. So if it weights around 20 grammes, then the deflection represents a vertical displacement of ~0.2mm, which is a change of potential energy of 4E-5J.
If the charging capacity is 18kV, then to achieve an equivalent electrical potential energy of 4E-5J would require a capacitance, wrt chamber wall, of 0.2pF.... which would've been the range of my estimate of it.
So,... it still looks all 'usual' to me. Nice experiment, showing electrostatic forces acting on macroscopic bodies. You can try the balloon-on-the-celing trick next time, too.
