Thanks but I can’t see how to edit my post
Wasn't referring to the post yo had already done, but to future posts.
And at the bottom of your posts, after posting, you should see this line options:
Hope you can see the embedded photo that I just dragged and dropped onto this post after clink on the "edit" link.
I can see some of those icons but not edit or delete. From what you say they will be on future posts although I’m surprised Incant edit my first one 😳
Now that I have taken the time to stop and think about it, the 'Delete' ability may only be there since I am a moderator, and the 'Edit' link starts showing up after a certain number of posts, but to be honest I don't remember what that number actually is.
I guess you might find out that number as soon as you have posted more. I'll be glad to bounce responses with you if you care to try posting back and forth with me for awhile.
Like this? 😄
You making your own hydrogen ?
Are you taking the voltage readings with the plates submerged, or outside the tank and dry ?
Wouldn't the liquid in the tank cause a voltage drop ?
Planning to make OxyHydrogen for brazing/welding.
Im exploring what produces the most gas including the supply system, electrolyte e.g urea instead of just water or KOH, plate separation and so on.
then will build a carbon nano particle ‘dry cell’ one and basically find the optimum set up.
yes voltage drop occurs with plates immersed in 10% KOH and passing say 7A.
The volts will drop in this scenario but I’m wondering if it matters that it has dropped in that it’s an effect after the energy has done the electrolysis and so it’s not important. If however the voltage drop interferes with the process then it is a significant factor.
If you stick your ohm meter leads into the tank, what reading does it give you ?
Are you seeing the "Edit" link yet? And you are not going to see the "Unapprove" link either!
"Edit" will only appear on the posts you make, and for only for a limited amount of time. Maybe just a few hours as I recall, but I would not take any bets on that. And maybe only after a specific number of posts. Let's see if getting to 10 posts is the magic number. You were at 8 on that last one.
We probably should have taken this to the testing thread, but maybe we are almost done anyway.
Well, I still don't have an answer to my question but maybe one isn't forthcoming.
Is the voltage drop the 'after-effect' of the electrical work being done to produce the electrolysis or instead will it interfere with the process.
For good operation, I need 2V across each pair of plates so in my plate configuration (see attached) in need 8V. If the result of the current flow through the electrolyser is the reduce the voltage across it to say 3V then at 0.75V/pair of plates, I shouldn't get any activity - and yet I get some small bubbling on all the plates.
Of interest is the fact that the resistance between the electrolyser terminals when no voltage is applied to it is 1 MOhm. When it's running then < 1 Ohm. All the ions floating around make a lot of difference.
Here is a short video of the mild gassing at 7A, 3V that at 95MB file size I have to offer via another link:

PS I was able to edit this! 🙂
