Comments on Kmarinas86's User-space[edit]

User page[edit]

Hi KMarinas. Would you mind putting the {{userpage}} template at the top of your user page? Your page will appear in a google search, and we're worried that the less computer-literate of our readers may mistake it for an encyclopaedia article. Normally, wikipedia guidelines state that userpages are not for publishing personal essays, however you are an editor in good standing, and the material is both interesting and unoffensive, so there is no reason to delete it if the template is up. Thanks a lot. yandman 08:09, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Entropy edits[edit]

Hello - can you give a list of your changes and some discussion on the Entropy talk page? I'm quite sure that they will be reverted unless there is some discussion, since the changes are so many and it's a page that is closely watched by a number of people. Thanks - PAR 04:53, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Entropy[edit]

Would you please explain on Talk:Entropy the purpose behind the many edits you have done today and what your last edit comment "(this is where it was dozens of posts ago)" means. Are you suggesting that all recent edits have been worthless? I am far too busy organising a Conference that is on this weekend, but I will get back to look at this article. I will say one thing however. That is that the first para has indeed gone back to being totally unintelligable to the average reader as opposed to being only partly unintelligable. This needs to be addressed. The first para should give the ordinary reader a real idea of what the article is about and perhaps they will then delve deeper. --Bduke 06:35, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

"Are you suggesting that all recent edits have been worthless?" nah. of course not!Kmarinas86 14:22, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Entropy page restructuring[edit]

Your recent edits to entropy were certainly bold, and while I've no doubt that they were well intentioned, the page has been the subject of much editing and discussion by a number of editors. In cases such as this it is best to fully discuss and document changes: the restructuring is now under consideration at Talk:Entropy#Recent massive edits and it will be great if you can contribute to the discussion and to making this an excellent article. ... dave souza, talk 10:23, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Thanks for providing more citations on Joseph Newman (inventor). Please note that if you cite a source multiple times, you need not repeat all the information in the cite multiple times. That's why we name the ref tags (preferably without spaces in the name). So if you have a citation like this: <ref name="invention">Citation information here, with links and such</ref>, then the next time you need that citation in the article, you need only write out the tag with the name like this: <ref name="invention" /> (note the terminating /> in the tag). -Amatulic 21:45, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Electric machines[edit]

As the article talk pages should concentrate on discussions central to the improvement of the article, I'll copy our little exchange about electric machines and efficency to your talk page, will briefly comment, and -- if you're interested -- discuss matters more thoroughly later. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pjacobi (talkcontribs) 15:39, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

And just for the record, I (unsurprisingly) sincerely belief that not much new technology will come out of Newman's invention. Even leaving all the contradictions to physics aside, there is a much more pragmatic argument: Any electric motor design which "only" cut backs losses by 50% (going from 90% to 95% efficency) would be of outmost commercial importance. You would be able to go (with bodyguards and lawyers if you prefer) into the development centers of Siemens, EMD, or Bombardier, demonstrate your working prototype and leave as a very rich man.
--Pjacobi (talk) 01:50, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
RI^2 = heat losses
RI*(meters/ohm) = current times distance = current momentum
Current momentum can be determined by integrating current along the length of wire (with dl as the derivative length). It can be found in the Biot-Savart law.
To maximize current momentum / heat losses, the following should be maximized:
RI*(meters/ohm) / RI^2 = (meters/ohm)/I = cross-sectional area of wire / (resistivity * current)
But current momentum produces the magnetic field, the square of which is proportional to its energy. So to maximize the energy of the magnetic field / heat loss.
R^2*I^2*(meters/ohm)^2 / RI^2 = R*(meters/ohm)^2 = distance^2/ohm
Just use a longer wire! I guess the mere acceleration of two opposite charges converts mass into energy, causing electromagnetic radiation. Even the simple movement of a charge can cause a magnetic field, causing acceleration, and therefore radiation! If the wire is so short, that is like shorting the battery (e.g. connecting them in series) and not using the charges to your advantage.Kmarinas86 (talk) 21:42, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

OK, so I'd like to start by saying that I may more or less completely misunderstand you, but (apart from a very good remark about the mass to energy conversion), your statements look rather heterodox to me. Granted, Newman would have to have found new physics to make his machine work, but I assume we are discussing textbook physics and EE in this side note. Specifically:

  • It's not the resistive (heat) losses (or other losses) which bound the electric motor's efficency to 100%. Even using a supraconducting coil and everything you wish, you won't get above 100% -- the counter voltage induced by the rotation will make the input power needed to sustain rotation equal to mechanical work done.
So is 100% efficiency a moving target? Will simply making your motor smaller, more powerful, lighter, etc. simply increase what the 100%-efficient power would be?Kmarinas86 (talk) 04:06, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Equal amount of copper will give you motors of equal parameters, only with voltages and currents scaled in different, compensating directions. E.g. both thse setups will give the same magnetic field and motor operation:
    • 1 meter of 0,15 mm diameter copper wire (about 1 Ω) at 4 V and 4 A (stall current) and
    • 4 meter of 0,075mm diameter copper wire (about 16 Ω) at 16 V and 1 A (stall current)
  • But I agree with your guess that the mere acceleration of two opposite charges converts mass into energy. Every time some energy is transported away from a system, the system loses mass according to E=mc² -- in most cases an unmeasurable low amount. Also if you temporarily attach strings to the oppositely charged bodies, you can extract mechanical energy while reducing their distance, exactly that amount of mass will be lost (If we keep the system isolated, its total mass stays the same, e.g when letting the two bodys clonking together, the energy will first be converted to kinectic energy, then to heat, and both contribute to the mass of the system, which in effect stays constant). But in a motor the movement is periodic, so there is nothing in sight which can result in mass loss -- unless some copper atoms are vanishing mysteriously or sort of transmutate into something other than normal copper.

Ouch. Not exactly briefly. Sorry. --Pjacobi (talk) 16:06, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

That's ok.Kmarinas86 (talk) 18:13, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Kmarinas86! You've written a long answer, but used HTML comments to make it invisible? I'm assuming, that you aren't finished with that one. Regarding the other remark: 100% a moving target => Getting 1W mechanical work out of 1W electrical energy is the absolute limiting target using textbook physics and electrical engineering. What is done in the manufacturers' research labs and written about in science and engineering journals is:

  • Getting nearer to 100%, reducing the amount of heat that must be carried away which often is the limiting factor at which power a device can be operated
  • Reducing size and weight for a specified power and efficency

  • LAW 1: Magnetic field produced per current is proportional to the length of the conductor used by all that current.
  • LAW 2: Therefore, the magnetic field produced per electrical power is proportional to [length of conductor * current] / [current^2 * resistance], or simply [length of conductor] / [current * resistance].
Note I said product of current and resistance, not voltage, since doubling current can be done at the same resistance and voltage by putting two batteries in parallel.
  • LAW 3: The magnetic field energy produced per copper mass is proportional to the [length of conductor * current]^2 / [length of conductor * area cross-section of conductor]. This can be simplified as current^2 * [length of conductor / area cross-section of conductor].
  • LAW 4: The magnetic field energy divided by electrical power is proportional to [length of conductor*current]^2 / [current^2 * resistance] or length of conductor^2 / resistance. If length of conductor is proportional to resistance, then the magnetic field energy produced per electrical power is simply proportional to the length of that wire.
  • LAW 5: Magnetic field produced per mass of conductor is proportional to [length of conductor * current] / [length of conductor * area cross-section of conductor], or simply current / cross-section of conductor.

Wow, what a hell of work you did to do all examples. I'll look at the details soon. But very generally speaking, I'm doubting you are taking the back reaction into account, i.e. the voltage induced by the rotating rotor. It's obviously proportinal to the number of turns. And it's that back reaction, which limit the efficiency to 100% -- the resistive losses only determine how far below 100% we'll end. --Pjacobi (talk) 22:59, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

In short:

Magnetic field energy per electrical power is proportional to:

(current * length of wire)^2 / (current*voltage)
(current * length of wire)^2 / (current^2*resistance)
(current * length of wire)^2 / (current^2*resistivity*length/area cross section of wire)
length of wire^2 / (resistivity*length/area cross section of wire)
length of wire / (resistivity/area cross section of wire)
length of wire * area cross section of wire / resistivity
mass of wire / resistivity

Magnetic field energy per mass of wire is proportional to:

electrical power / resistivity

Magnetic field energy, therefore increases with the electrical power and the mass of the conductor. As such, there is some point at which the energy from the magnetic field exceeds the electrical power. The only way to justify this is to say that the energy comes from the mass of the conductor which is "excited" by electrical current.Kmarinas86 (talk) 20:51, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I now make the conclusion that all electric motors, not just Newman machines, convert mass into energy beyond that required to produce portable storage of electrical energy * (i.e. batteries). The conversion of mass into energy corresponds to simply the magnetic field that is produced and collapsed, similar to the concept of work done by expanding and contracting gases in a thermodynamic engine. The efficiency of this then would be determined by how much of that energy is usable and extracted by having a mass which interacts with this magnetic field, whether they be permanent magnets or electromagnets.Kmarinas86 (talk) 21:05, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Doubling the mass of the wire can affect the electrical power depending on how you scale it. If you double its length, the power will be cut in half, while the total magnetic field will stay the same. This results in a energy efficient, but heavy, machine that is not suitable for portable power. This matches the specifications of a Newman machine which is not complemented by other devices.
  • If you use wire that has twice the cross-sectional area, you double the current and the magnetic field, quadrupling the power, but halve the life span, which doubles the total magnetic energy produced, but for twice the mass. This results in energy inefficient, and heavy machine that is suitable for portable power. This matches the specifications of large electric motors. These would be suitable for complementing a large Newman machine to power large vehicles.
  • Alternatively, you can use batteries that produce higher current (whether by parallel arrangement or greater voltage), which increases the current for a given coil, as well as increasing the total magnetic field per mass. This results in an energy inefficient, but light machine, that is suitable for highly mobile power. This matches the specifications of small electric motors. These would be suitable for complementing a small Newman machine to power small vehicles.

Wikipedia Ambassador Program is looking for Campus Ambassadors in Houston[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian connected with the University of Houston. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at another Houston school, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live in Houston and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 20:26, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

studying for exams??[edit]

A lot of the higher mathematics articles would seem to be much ado about nothing, if it were not for its utility for those who are simply reviewing for higher level math exams.

Why would you say something like that? It is not only young people studying for exams that use Wikipedia's math articles; they are used by mature mathematicians as well. Michael Hardy (talk) 01:23, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite


Hello Kmarinas86. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 01:39, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Hi there. I've come across a number of your internet posts, etc, regarding Mills' theory of classical physics. I share a similar interest, and it appears we are both around the same level of 'technical proficiency' with it. I'd love to discuss it with you sometime, if you're so inclined. My wiki page is

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Eric_mit_1992

I am new to wikipedia user/editing, and I have no idea how one sends another member private message, etc. I'd rather discuss over email, etc. Anyway, feel free to drop me a line.

An article of interest to you is covered by discretionary sanctions under WP:ARBPS[edit]

In WP:Requests for arbitration/Pseudoscience, the Arbitration Committee has acknowledged long-term and persistent problems in the editing of articles related to pseudoscience. As a result, the Committee has enacted broad editing restrictions, described here.

These editing restrictions may be applied to any editor for cause, provided the editor has been previously informed of the case. This message is to so inform you. This message does not necessarily mean that your current editing has been deemed a problem; this is a template message crafted to make it easier to notify any user who has edited the topic of the existence of these sanctions.

Generally, the next step, if an administrator feels your conduct on pages in this topic area is disruptive, would be a warning, to be followed by the imposition of sanctions (although in cases of serious disruption, the warning may be omitted). Hopefully no such action will be necessary.

You're being notified of this Arbcom case due to your interest in Blacklight Power. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 06:43, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Bhny (talk) 19:51, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

You have been blocked indefinitely, until you can convince another admin that you won't violate the WP:OUTING policy that thoroughly again. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:59, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello - as an oversighter I was asked to look over the (now suppressed) edits you made, and personally I think the indefinite block was the right call in this case. You made it fairly clear they considered your course of action necessary in order to defeat someone else entirely in an argument and therefore, while what they were doing could arguably have been seen as a good-faith action, I believe you would not hesitate to repeat the act in future. I would advise you to consider what you have done while they are blocked and appeal the block when you understand that your actions were inappropriate. — foxj 15:04, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

I appealed for the unblock yesterday. I am a waiting for a response from the administrator. That's all I want to say right now.

Posting of block text[edit]

Please do not post large blocks of quoted text as you have been doing at the BLP article. A link to the material is sufficient.

March 2013[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Covering group into another page. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. IRWolfie- (talk) 21:25, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Your Signature[edit]

Could I persuade you to use a more conventional signature? You signature in the section above sounds like this to someone using a screen reader for the blind:

siNkarma eight six dash Expert Sectioneer of Wikipedia Okie Dokie. Eight six equals one nine plus nine plus one four plus karma equals one nine plus nine plus one four plus talk two two colon three one comma six april two zero one three left paranthesis yoo tee cee right parenthesis.

This has a few problems. First of all, the clever two-line effect makes the "Okie Dokie." come out below the "siNkarma86—Expert Sectioneer of Wikipedia". Second, your use of numbers, "+" and "=" makes it hard for blind persons to read. Besides being annoyingly long, normally someone using a screen reader hits the "go to the next sentence" key as soon as the see the pattern "name number number colon", knowing that the rest is a normal Wikipedia signature. All those numbers make it hard to tell when the name ends the time begins.

Might I suggest something like this?

Talk:Ruggero Santilli[edit]

I have reverted your restoration of a 'sanitised' version of the IP's antisemitic rant at Talk:Ruggero Santilli. It isn't our job to rewrite material which per WP:NOTFORUM has no legitimate reason to be on a talk page in the first place - and you should note that the IP has already been blocked for posting it. Furthermore, we don't even know if it is Santilli, and allowing such inflammatory material to be posted in his name without verification could well violate WP:BLP policy. I cannot see any possible benefit in encouraging further such behaviour, regardless of who is responsible for the posting. AndyTheGrump (talk) 01:09, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Heat page. Is heat only something transferred?[edit]

Hi, I saw your comment on heat on the heat page.

>>Heat is the thing being transferred. Heat is the quantity of thermal energy responsible for the change of thermal energy of an object. You can think of "heat flow" as the transfer of the transferred entity "heat". So in the context of classical thermodynamics the term "heat flow" is a redundant way of saying "heat".

For some strange reason many modern textbooks are in denial about the classical meaning of heat as described by Kelvin Planck and co. As far as i can see this came about because of the influence of one particular text book writer in America.

Planck treatise on heat was published with its 22nd edition in 1964 with the text clearly saying heat was something in matter.

Wiki for some really strange reason totally refuses to allow the classical view to be correctly described and refuses to allow any explanation as to why the change to the modern version used by some text books is the only allowable version of reality.

I spent months on this a few years back. All of my labouriously created edits to show the classical view of heat were instaneously removed by one editor after i had worked enormously hard to get my changes past other editors who had earlier insisted i was wrong. It is just too weird that something as simple as heat cannot be described on wiki. I am by the way banned on wiki and dont want to get involved again and find i am just wasting my life on these topics.

One thing is for sure these heat discussions will continue forever if Wiki refuses to allow the classical view of heat to be correctly described and refuses to show why the change was made to the current version that wiki insists is the only allowed version. I cannot understand it. Why would anybody behave like this??

Thanks for listening!

February 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at BlackLight Power shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Bishonen | talk 03:34, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

BlackLight Power is under discretionary sanctions[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions (information on which is at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions) on any editor who is active on pages broadly related to pseudoscience and fringe science. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, satisfy any standard of behavior, or follow any normal editorial process. If you inappropriately edit pages relating to this topic, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The Committee's full decision can be read at the "Final decision" section of the decision page.

Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, with the appropriate sections of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Procedures, and with the case decision page before making any further edits to the pages in question. This notice is given by an uninvolved administrator and will be logged on the case decision, pursuant to the conditions of the Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions system.

Warning regarding your edits at Talk:BlackLight Power[edit]

Kmarinas86, regarding your edits at Talk:BlackLight Power, including this recent one: This is another notice that the article is under WP:ARBPS, and a warning that article Talk pages are to be used to only to discuss improvements to the article, based in reliable sources and Wikipedia content rules. Your comment I linked consisted almost entirely of your unsourced personal theories and speculation about how the company operates; the only phrase that would be clearly acceptable under WP:TPG was "we can't add it to the article yet per Wikipedia WP:RS". Further misuses of the article Talk page will result in sanctions. Thank you. Zad68 02:33, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
