Did/do water engines exist?
Water Engines don’t exist as the name implies. There is no way of combusting (burning) water to produce the expansion of gas that drives a turbine or piston. The water engine that is “rumored” would really be a hydrogen engine. The difference is that the hydrogen is removed straight from the water instead of being stored in a high pressure tank or other medium (there’s lot of inventions in the works to store Hydrogen).
Standard chemistry books that detail the process note that it takes more energy to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water than is produced by burning the hydrogen. Stan Meyer, (the so-called Water Engine inventor) thought that he found a way use water’s own molecular resonant frequency to “collapse” the water into hydrogen and oxygen and in turn output more energy than was inputted.
The proof of this process is scant. If this worked there would be no need for Electricity companies, oil companies and many others. Against common belief, automobile manufacturers would benefit greatly as the cost of owning an automobile plummets when there is no added fuel costs. The only people who would not are energy companies. Also political power would shift more easily to underdeveloped nations and empower the more creative, similar to what the internet has done for entrepreneurs but on a much grander scale.
Here is a video from Google Video. It is old, appearing to be from the 70’s but having a published date of 1995. Most of us would choose to believe in this or in similar “cold fusion” experiments. However, is it really possible for giant corporations or nations to really keep this down? Is this really just a search for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. See for yourself and please comment here.
