Hey guys, thanks for the help earlier on about the "invisibility cloak".
Anyway, I'm interested to know how one would go about generating a fairly independant sphere / ball of pure plasma / electric energy suspended in mid air / moving through space. Say, with a 50mm radius from the core, and which would die / dissipate in less than a minute. An energy bullet, one could say.
Do you know of an apparatus? Or, could you explain this theoretically?
Pardon my poor physics, but here is some of my theory- Feel free to correct it! :
1. Mechanisms that generate other mechanisms need to also generate / connect those mechanisms to a permanent / temporary source of energy. The topic of discussion deals with a Parent Mechanism that runs off of a permanent source of energy that generates other Child Mechanisms that run off of a temporary source of energy.
2. These child mechanisms / spheres of energy all have an EMC (Electro Magnetic Core), which acts in the same way as a motor, engine or dynamo. A core that promotes rotation and generates a fair amount of energy.
3. These child mechanisms / spheres also have a crust / cloak of rotating energy on the outside of the core.
4. The EMC helps maintain rotation and energy in the cloak, but both the Cloak and EMC are generated by the Parent Mechanism. And a fair amount of rotation and energy is injected into the child mechanisms before they function independantly off of their own rotation and energy.
5. These child mechanisms / spheres of electricity can be ejected / shot from the parent unit like a gun.
6. Every second after the child mechanism's creation, the EMC weakens causing the Cloak to also weaken. When the EMC dissapears, so will the cloak.
7. At 100% EMC and 100% Cloak capacity these child mechanisms have a similar effect as a titanium blade that spins in all directions...
Now, do you have any feedback? For instance, is this possible? Do I need to overlook a few things?
For surety, I don't know the physics behind this EMC I have invisioned, or this cloak or this mechanism. I'm sure I could try figure something out, but it would be very novice in approach.
I'm not asking you to do my homework, just need some feeback, and direction.
Thanks for reading,
As someone has already stated, this energy would probably be plasma energy, not electricity.
Physics? I wouldn't attempt that but it does sound fascinataing! Perhaps you can profit from Writeacher's lesson:
It looks as if what you need to do is learn how to conduct thorough and effective searches for yourself. That's what research is, and I'm sure that's what your teacher expects you to do -- conduct research. You are searching for information that is so specific that you have to be prepared for the possibility that none of it may be online. Or some may be, and some may not. In addition to searching on the Internet, you also need to make best friends with the reference librarian(s) in your local or college library.
At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.
My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page
< http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en > and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.
Learning HOW to use Google or other search engines can save you time and help you learn to find information efficiently. Here are some websites that can teach you how:
... and one to help you judge whether a particular website's information is worth your time:
