SSsssshhh! but Joel, however, the changing magnetic field will produce
a 2000Volt Voltage on the plastic loop and with a resistance
of R (even though admittedly it is not a conductor) the current should
equal V=RI I =V/R, or is ohms law now invalid!!!
Hmmm.. okay suppose I attach conducting leads to the loop as it
spins (placed close together and designed so as to not affect the
motion of the spinning loop )and even connect the conducting leads
together. You have a closed circuit with a resistor connected to
conducting wires and a voltage. In a regular circuit with wires and a
resistor if the resistor has a voltage V isn't V=RI, but your saying
now a resistor (the plastic loop) with a 2000 voltage across it
connected to conductors in a ciruit will not have a current?
how many cats with amalgam fillings that are generating 350mv while spinning
in the earth's magnetic field would i need to charge my electric car with
enough energy to go buy enough beer to help make this thread make any sense?
IMO, as a practicing dentist and father of two (who are my own real
kids, I hope), is that you'd be better off harnassing about twenty cats
and attaching them to a dog sled mounted on wheels and have them pull
you to the store for said beer.
I'll leave it to you to figure out how to keep said cats going in the
