Stanley meyer’s water fuel cell – wikipedia hp gas online booking

##

Throughout his patents [4] [5] [6] Meyer used the terms "fuel cell" or "water fuel cell" to refer to the portion of his device in which electricity is passed through water to produce hydrogen and oxygen. Meyer’s use of the term in this sense is contrary to its usual meaning in science and engineering, in which such cells are conventionally called " electrolytic cells". [7] Furthermore, the term " fuel cell" is usually reserved for cells that produce electricity from a chemical redox reaction, [8] [9] [10] whereas Meyer’s fuel cell consumed electricity, as shown in his patents and in the circuit pictured on the right. Meyer describes in a 1990 patent the use of a "water fuel cell assembly" and portrays some images of his "fuel cell water capacitor". According to the patent, in this case "… the term ‘fuel cell’ refers to a single unit of the invention comprising a water capacitor cell … that produces the fuel gas in accordance with the method of the invention." [5] Media coverage [ edit ]

In a news report on an Ohio TV station, Meyer demonstrated a dune buggy he claimed was powered by his water fuel cell. He estimated that only 22 US gallons (83 liters) of water were required to travel from Los Angeles to New York. [11] Furthermore, Meyer claimed to have replaced the spark plugs with "injectors" that introduced a hydrogen/oxygen mixture into the engine cylinders. The water was subjected to an electrical resonance that dissociated it into its basic atomic make-up. The water fuel cell would split the water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, which would then be combusted back into water vapor in a conventional internal combustion engine to produce net energy. [3]

Philip Ball, writing in academic journal Nature, characterized Meyer’s claims as pseudoscience, noting that "It’s not easy to establish how Meyer’s car was meant to work, except that it involved a fuel cell that was able to split water using less energy than was released by recombination of the elements … Crusaders against pseudoscience can rant and rave as much as they like, but in the end they might as well accept that the myth of water as a fuel is never going to go away." [2]

In 1996 Meyer was sued by two investors to whom he had sold dealerships, offering the right to do business in Water Fuel Cell technology. His car was due to be examined by the expert witness Michael Laughton, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. However, Meyer made what Professor Laughton considered a "lame excuse" on the days of examination and did not allow the test to proceed. [3] According to Meyer, the technology was patent pending and under investigation by the patent office, the Department of Energy and the military. [ citation needed] His "water fuel cell" was later examined by three expert witnesses [ who?] in court who found that there "was nothing revolutionary about the cell at all and that it was simply using conventional electrolysis." The court found Meyer had committed "gross and egregious fraud" and ordered him to repay the two investors their $25,000. [3] Meyer’s death [ edit ]

Stanley Meyer died suddenly on March 20, 1998, after dining at a restaurant. His brother claimed that during a meeting with two Belgian investors in a restaurant, Meyer suddenly ran outside, saying "They poisoned me". [1] After an investigation, the Grove City police went with the Franklin County coroner report that ruled that Meyer, who had high blood pressure, died of a cerebral aneurysm. [1] Some of Meyer’s supporters believe that he was assassinated to suppress his inventions. [1] [2] [12] Aftermath [ edit ]

You start with water, you break it apart into its constituent elements (hydrogen and oxygen), and then you recombine them by burning. (…) Extracting net energy from this total cycle is impossible, if you believe in the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Otherwise, you have the basis of a perpetual-motion machine. (…) He died in 1998 after eating at a restaurant; the coroner diagnosed an aneurysm, but the conspiracy web still suspects he was poisoned.
