What is important […]
Thank you spark.
I know it happens occasionally; a chunk of rock with enough air in it to float drifts around the ocean until it gets waterlogged. Somewhere, in another thread, there was talk about simply water […]

What is the optimum distance between cathode and anode?
Do you know a quick & sloppy way to estimate how much current would be needed […]
