# Extremely High Voltage, Extremely Low Amperage, 1 watt?

• posted

Hi:

How many volts of electricity are required to gain 1 watt of power, if the current is only 1 electron per second?

Yup, 1 electron per second is an extremely weak amperage.

Thanks,

One mole of electrons is 96,485 coulombs. Work it out, dipshit. One eV is 1.602177x10^(-19) joules. Work it out, dipshit.

Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit. Work it out, dipshit.

Fuck Off and Die, this is the river of shit, remember?

It has a crippled approach to significant figures and physicality, too. 10^27 volts requires a special plug.

Radio Shack; between the cell phone holsters and the cell phone headsets, and across the aisle from the cell phones and cell phone car chargers.

If you get to the colored cell phone face plates, you've gone too far.

Oh, yeah, quite special:-)

You have to hang out at the bar at the end of the universe to get it.

You're really full of it. :-]

All known materials break down at a few GV/meter (or less), so this "plug" must be far larger than the solar system....

So, it'll probably gravitationally collapse into a black hole. Won't be easy to plug it into anything... oh, wait, the socket will be another black hole. This may work:-)

Dear mmeron:

In a vacuum, corona formation potential is only 275 volts. A black hole so charged would manifest preferential Hawking radiation that would bleed the charge down to something less spectacular in a few (million?) years.

You can increase the breakdown voltage in a gas by increasing the pressure, but with enough pressure, you no longer have a gas...

That's in poor vacuum, the "bad zone roughly between 1 torr to 10^(-3) torr. By the time you get down to 10^(-6) - 10^(-7) you're back to about the level you've at atmospheric pressure.

Many an experimentalist learned the hard way the consequences of pumping down from atmosphere on a system with high voltage present. Ain't pretty.

Oh, well, it is not as we're in a hurry:-)

Yes, quite true. Well, I think we can left designing the plug to Radium.

"goun"?? "resistanse"?? Neither are words, dipshit.

Learn how wittun speakts, nitwit. goun is the dative infinitiv or oblique prospective tense. resistanse is the proper Latin spelling of the property, where se is the letter|staffr seo|shoe. Nuke English- speakkr-illiterati like you tom hell.

Why do you insist that this literal abortion is English? Its totally discombobulate and predistgraphiates any melingtonological discustretions.....
