The possible activating role of strong currents
Dr Celani’s hydrated constantan wire based experiments are a simple platform for investigating the role of various control parameters. Previous investigations identified the hydrogen flux within the wire being the main control parameter. However, the amount of produced heat depends not only on the present state of the system but also on its past states, indicating the presence of some kind of activating process.
Recent results suggest that the passage of strong currents through the wires may play an activating role for subsequent heat production.
