Calculating Depletion of Mass

There has been a lot of speculation lately on the Journal of Nuclear Physics concerning how much mass is depleted during the workings of an E-Cat or Hot Cat. Andrea Rossi has stated that it is virtually impossible to measure the amount of depletion of the various masses within the units. He informed Dr. Joseph Fine just recently that there is no depletion of the catalyst mass. Hydrogen and nickel are expected to be depleted, but a certain amount is converted to either copper or zinc. Rossi has said that over a 6 months period, there is about a 175 milligram difference in the weight of the masses in a 1 MW unit.

However, Steven Karels pointed out that:

“…you have 100 10kW eCat units (or more) within your 1 MW system. If you have 10 to 16 “mini-e Cats” within one 10 kW eCat, then there are between 1000 and 1600 “mini-eCats” in the 1 MW system. So. The mass loss per “mini-eCat” would be 175 micrograms. If there is 5-10 grams of “fuel” in each mini-eCat, you are looking at a relative mass change of 1 part in about 6000 change. I think it would be difficult to detect.”

Rossi agreed with Karels. In addition, such small amounts would be hard to measure within any rate of variation.

  1. Nowadays world is searching for new energy sources in traditional understanding of properties of matter and also in spheres with the theoretical foundations of factors of origin or the energy. This sphere includes a method of electron-quark analogy and multielectron theory of superconductivity (Yekaterinburg, UrFU, 2007) that justify obtaining of energy by interaction of electrons. On specific conditions this interaction generates low-energy nuclear reactions superconductivity in room temperature.
    One of releases of this theory is a power reactor (energy catalyzer E-Cat) announced by Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi (University of Bologna, Italia) at 28.10.2011. It generates heat energy by catalytic fusion of nickel and hydrogen nucleuses at room temperature and low pressure. Work of reactor based on the hypothesis of multicorpuscle (multielectrons and multiatoms) existence have realized in working system which generates 1 MW power.
    Method of electron-quark analogy and multielectron theory of superconductivity predict the possibility of developing more perfect solid-state generator that may be more perspective and practically feasible than Rossi’s and Focardi’s one.
    Method of electron-quark analogy was designed to create new energy sources based on the superconductivity. This method bases on the characteristics of electron-gluon two-tone chromoplasma as a special case of three-tone quark-gluon plasma which is exploring in quantum chromodynamics.

  2. 175 mg is calculated from Einstein E=mc2 formula.

    0.000175kg * (299’792’458 m/s)^2 = 15’728’215’627’894 J = 4’368’948’785 Wh

    1MW during 6 months: 1MW * 24 * 182.5 = 4’380’000’000 Wh

    4.38 GWh is produced with a 1MW plant running 24/7 in 6 months.
    4.37 GWh is produced if a nuclear process generate a mass difference of 175mg.

    So, I believe these 175mg are simply a mathematical estimation.

    However to be correct, the electrical input power should be subtracted from the 1MW.
