  1. [glow=green,2,300]Okay, thank you guys. Does anyone care to explain how it remains exactly the same? Does it take more energy from the battery because I'm doing it this way?[/glow]
  2. [glow=green,2,300]Thank you so much! So there will be NO change?[/glow]
  3. [glow=green,3,600]Okay, nevermind my stupid comment (I haven't gotten any replies when I ask stupid questions), so hopefully this one will sound more intelligent. How am I supposed to keep the battery connected to the back? [/glow]
  4. [glow=green,2,300]Read twelve times but no help?[/glow]
  5. [glow=green,2,300]Say I have a 9v battery, and I have a wire hooked up to it. If I split that wire into two more wires later on, and then those two into two more wires, will there be 9v at the end of each wire, or will it be 2.25v at the end of each? I'm sorry my questions are such elementary ones, but I just got an interest in electricity a day or two ago, and I know NOTHING on the subject. Thanks for all your help.[/glow]
  6. [glow=green,2,300]I apologize for not putting up the better information on it, I can't seem to find my notes. So I won't be able to put the details up until spring break is over and I can talk to my teacher again. Sorry for the inconvenience.[/glow]
  7. [glow=green,2,300]Woops... this was probably stupid to do, but I managed to get all the charge out... I connected a piece of metal across and there was a bright flash. Now there's no charge, did I break it?[/glow]
  8. [glow=green,2,300]Okay Mad Dog, I'm having a problem now. Out of boredom, on the way home I was taking pictures, which activated the flash. So, I remove the battery and start working on it. So far, so good, except, even without the battery, it won't stop ZAPPING ME. Is there anyway for me to drain what's left of the charge without continually zapping myself? I don't like being zapped...[/glow]
  9. [glow=green,2,300]What exactly does a "Tesla Coil" do?[/glow]
  10. [glow=green,2,300]Wow, as soon as I learn schematics, this (http://www.uoguelph.ca/~antoon/circ/hv/stungun/stungun.html) is definately going to have to be one of my projects. Though I think I'll start with Mad_Dog's more playful gun first. His isn't dangerous, me and a friend spent out freshman math class taking turns zapping ourselves with one. It does feel uncomfortable, but isn't dangerous.[/glow]
  11. [glow=green,2,300]I apologize for my utter lack of knowledge on the subject, because this will be a simple description. Later I'll be able to grab my notes on it and give everyone more information. Supplies: A cord that plugs into the wall A light switch A spool of wire (will edit with details on wire later) A 20v light PVC pipe (size determined by center of spool, should fit snuggly) Metal coat hangers (enough to fill pvc pipe) Something to cut the hangers (want them the right size) An aluminum ring (you can shoot it around with this toy) Well... until I get my notes on it, that's all I have for now, however, I can tell you what it does. If you set the ring on it, when you turn it on, it'll shoot the ring. Should you choose to hold the ring, it will warm up... the closer to the spool, the quicker it will heat (it will get hot). You make a ring with wire and attach the light to it, and the closer you get to the spool, the brighter it will glow. I apologize if this device is already up here. Feel free to add feedback to help improve this device. [/glow]
