    Get ready for some crazy claims here.
    Like any battery breakthrough announcement, it should be taken with a grain of salt. Most of those announcements never result in any kind of commercialization.

    ahem -- Just to be really, really clear: and because I think that both Maximillian and I have published on thermodynamic topics in the peer-reviewed literature :)

    The only reason I ever brought this up was as an antidote to the tendency of so many folks in the "enlightened, tech-savvy 21st Century" to believe that one can get something from nothing because of their ignorance of very basic and well established physical principles. It is very sad -- because it can result in the separation of people and their money for no good reason :(

    That is absolutely and irrevocably untrue. Sorry.

    EDIT: PS, Maximillian, I do see (and concede) your point that delta(h) is probably, numerically, larger than delta(m) in the present case. Not to be confused with delta(H), of course! :)

    I think it relates to my perception of thermodynamics :|

    That's right. Thermodynamics is no laughing matter.

    Alright, now you're starting to sound like my ex-wife. :o :p

    You're OK by me Doc.

    I think, in part, a misunderstanding of what you meant by "violent agreement" as well as your (apparently not as universally-recognized as I thought) enjoyment of turning a phrase (in this case, 'anti-entropy') seems to have run afoul of a desire for use of the vernacular of science.

    Maximillian, you're OK too, methinks. As Doc H has alluded to, it's probable that you two are just defining the problem (of the truck/ore, not thermodynamics) differently and that on balance you're more in agreement than not. Perhaps even violently so.

    I do wish that you would craft a response more informative than a dismissive video, though. For me, personally, I'd like to know what 'lens' you're viewing the problem through: From Acme Mining Co.'s? From the dump truck's? From the Universe's? Obviously, if we consider the work done by plate tectonics, which so graciously lifted all that ore to elevation, to be "free", that changes the balance sheet considerably compared to a Universal lens that includes work done by the planet as a debit.

    I suspect that some of the disagreement you're feeling has to do with viewing through different 'lenses'.

    But I could just be barking mad.

    Peace.

    I think we've added an air of erudition to this thread ;)
  • So guys, that's how thermodynamics works.
    ......... Guys ?

    GUYS !!!

    This place has a ways to go vis-a-vis "Threads about nothing"...
    The "black paint" thread would be a great example, but it's about something. The metaphoric resonance of the black paint is practically Melvillian in its portent and intensity.

    (speaking of erudition...)

    audiokarma, bless its heart, is still probably the champ for "threads about nothing" (and I mean that as a compliment).

    The new(ish) kid on the block, www.hifihaven.org has potential, though.


  • Thermodynamics for Dummies

    Regenerative breaking where one is mining on top of a mountain and carrying the load down the mountain can generate a certain amount of power.
    The empty truck going back up the hill doesn't produce any regenerative power .
    Power is consumed getting the lightened truck back up the mountain.

    Regenerative breaking where one is open pit mining and carrying the load UP
    0.6 miles to ground level doesn't occur.
    Larger amounts of power are consumed getting this fat loaded pig up to ground level than is regenerated with the lightened truck returning to the pit.

    .... as can be imagined from the Bingham Open Pit Mine in Utah

    I'm hopeful that I'll be able to complete my "Where Puppies Come From for Dummies" by this weekend. It's almost unbelievable !

    That neutral conductor should be moved farther away from that left bank of breakers.

    Hot dogs? Okay. Let me rephrase that last post: "That natural condiment should be mouthed closer to that last bun full of wieners."

    .....you need to identify the white wire as a current carrying conductor at the breaker. Cover the white jacket with black or red tape. Safety first.

    I did not wire up this panel. My dad bought this house in 1982, the only problem he ever had was the main breaker died.
