DIY Hydrogen/Oxygen Generators From Grocery Store Items (HHO Fuel Cells & Split Cell Electrolysis)

I had a lot of fun doing these experiments about 12 years ago.  I ended on some conclusions.  Straight DC is okay, but when you get to playing around with pulsed DC, you can really go crazy.  I ramped my voltage up to about 5KV and was able to adjust my frequency to about 1-2 kHz and able to adjust the duty cycle as I saw fit.  Last set of toying with it was to use pure water with no electrolyte, and having a resistance monitoring system to automatically adjust the duty cycle based on water quality.  And that's when I reached the end of my skill set.  I'll hit it back up when I learn to code.

Explosion of a fuel truck on a highway in China hit the video

A fuel truck exploded on a freeway in the Chinese eastern province of Zhejiang. About this with reference to the Central Television of China reports RIA Novosti. The moment of the explosion hit the video.
After the explosion, the tank flew at least a few hundred meters more, flying over three- and four-story buildings. The blast wave knocked out the windows and doors in private houses located near the highway where the incident happened.
According to preliminary data, five people were killed as a result of the accident, at least 50 were injured. What exactly was transported in the fuel truck is still unknown. Also, no reasons for the explosion were reported.

Economics of Nuclear Reactor

What are the costs to construct, fuel and operate a nuclear power plant compared to a natural gas power plant. Compares capital cost and fuel costs and looks at how the cost over time should be analyzed. This is done in a visual manner. The time to construct the plant is shown to be a critical variable along with interest rates. The years when the investment is paid off, when the costs are equal and the variables which could change in value over time are all discussed. Electric production costs of all different types of fuels are compared.
