A hazardous charge can accumulate. A long-lasting charge is imparted to the Mylar by immersing it in a field of a few thousand volts from an electrostatic generator after the motor is assembled. He rigged a wagon-wheel-sized, horizontally mounted device with 30 glass spokes.

It is conceivable that such motors could replace the complex installations now needed for converting the high-voltage d. The motor is based on an electret made in by Mototaro Eguchi, professor of physics at the Higher Naval College in Tokyo. Jefimen,o electrostatic charge for driving the motor electrostztic stored in Leyden jars. The performance of the motor easily met the design specifications. You can measure this voltage with an earth-field antenna — a wire with a jetimenko point at the top to start a corona, or with a bit of radioactive materials that ionizes the air in its immediate vicinity.

Moreover, as I have mentioned, the inner electrostativ of the cylinder should be backed by conducting foil to enhance the corona. The upper end of the wire was connected to a foot length of metallic tinsel of the kind that serves for decorating a Christmas tree. This rotor is sandwiched between four semicircular sectors that are cross-connected [ see illustration ]. 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.

These charged particles floating through the air charge the surface of the palstic disk nearby. Previous 3, 6, 9. This is might also be called a gravimagnetic field. The electret reacts to neighboring charges exactly as though it were a charged electrode, that is, it is physically attracted or repelled depending on the polarity of the neighboring electrode. Cut edges can be sanded so they have a white, frosted appearance that, in contrast with clear surfaces, gives your finished motor a sparkling, jewel-like appearance.


He stuck the device outside and flipped it degrees. Never fly the balloon in a city or in any other location where the antenna can drift into contact with a high-voltage power line. Two months later, they successfully operated operated a corona motor from electricity in the air.

Motors based on the slot effect can be designed in a number of forms.

It represents a physical approach profoundly different from the time-space geometry approach of the Einstein general theory of relativity. That deposited a like charge on the thimble, so they repelled each other. The motor was started by hand. This design needs no foil lining or backing because a potential gradient exists between electrodes on opposite sides of the disks.

A smaller and simpler version of the machine was demonstrated in by J. Yet there it is, spinning merrily.

Jefimenko’s Electrostatic Motors & Heaviside’s Gravitational EM Analogy

After about a minute, we clocked some motprs with a watch and found it was spinning at rpm. He has learned that their performance can be vastly improved by properly shaping the corona-producing electrodes [see illustration at right].

These books have some amazing advanced thinking in the understanding of Maxwell and EM.

The only essential jrfimenko parts are the electrodes and their interconnecting leads. The high-voltage terminals of two or more Leyden jars that carried charges of opposite polarity were positioned to graze the thimbles on opposite sides of the rotating wheel.

Mmotors by Professor Oleg Jefimenko also available from http: Electret Scientific Company, A meteorological hypothesis is that the field is maintained largely by thunderstorms, which pump electrons out of the air and inject them into the earth through bolts of lightning that continuously strike the surface at an average rate of strokes per second. Centrifugal forces at the ends jefiemnko degrees out of phase, thus constituting a couple. One design consists of an electret in the shape of a wafer-thin sheet of Mylar supported by a flat disk of balsa wood millimeters in diameter and three millimeters thick.


At higher altitudes the rate decreases.

Never fly it below clouds or leave it aloft unattended. The tinsel functioned as multiple needle points. With one grain of gunpowder one cannot achieve so much as with one hundred pounds.

Forces that act between the sprayed charges and the knife-edge electrodes impart momentum to the cylinder. He showed us motors that run on the voltage developed when you hold them in your hands and scuff across a carpet, and other heavier, more powerful ones that could do real work. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Run motors with atmospheric electricity. As Jefimenko explains, the force can be increased by adding both moving and fixed electrodes. Box, Star City, W. The charged particles cause the electrical field that Jefimenko saw demonstrated. Some experimenters substitute Halowax for the rosin. Inthe German physicist J.

Jefimenkp my delight the motor began to run slowly when the tinsel reached an altitude of about feet. A strip of plastic is placed between sets of knife-edge electrodes slanted to initiate motion in the desired direction.
