I, Sarah, hereby award you, AzseicsoK, with the Minor Barnstar for your excellent clean up efforts related to science, transportation, NYC & DC (I live in DC!) and beyond. Thanks so much, your small but very important efforts help to make Wikipedia the world's largest encyclopedia! Keep up the great work. Sarah (talk) 22:02, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Dead links[edit]

Thanks for looking after a variety of things. In case you didn't know about it, the {{dead link}} template can be used to mark dead links. In the specific case of Plants for a Future, the pages seem to still exist, just under a different URL, for example [1]. Kingdon (talk) 17:45, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Tables[edit]

I never claimed that sortable was less useful than formatting headings but Koopatrev asked how to use colspan and rowspan so that was the question I answered and I was suggesting that getting that right before trying to make a table sortable was a good idea. NtheP (talk) 16:04, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

High versus low resistance[edit]

Hello, Uporządnicki/AzseicsoK. I saw your message at Talk:Joule heating, and I thought I would try to make things a little clearer. Whether what I am going to say will do that or not, I don't know, but I hope so. Before saying anything else, though, I will point out that the talk page of an article is for discussion relating to editing the article, not for asking general questions about the subject of the article, and the right place for such general questions is Wikipedia:Reference desk, in this case specifically Wikipedia:Reference desk/Science. If what I say is not helpful enough, you may like to try asking there. However, for now I am moving your question from Talk:Joule heating to this page, and attempting to answer it here. JamesBWatson (talk) 13:08, 17 June 2013 (UTC)


For many years, I've puzzled over a paradox; I've looked at this and other articles in Wikipedia several times over the past couple of years, hoping it would be addressed.
The article starts by saying that electric current moves through a resistance and generates heat; you can read that in a thousand places, and every scientifically minded school kid knows it. But now, here's the difficulty. We have Q = I2R. Increase the resistance R while keeping the current I the same, and the heat produced, Q (in a perfect system of course) will increase proportionally to R.
But in most situations--virtually any household situation, for example--things are provided a more or less constant voltage. So by Ohm's law, when you increase the resistance R, the current I decreases proportionally. Conversely, decrease R, and you increase I. But then, while the heat produced Q changes with the resistance R, it changes with the SQUARE of the current I.
The upshot is, as you increase the resistance in a typical application, you decrease the heat produced. And as you decrease the resistance, you increase the heat. So in a typical plug-in appliance with a heating element, a LOWER resistance should produce MORE heat.
This seems to fly in the face of the idea that the current flows through the resistance and produces heat.
Puzzling through this question, I do start to think that if the resistance of the heating element starts to get comparable to the resistance of whatever is supplying the voltage (and it must have some; typically, the electricity will come through wires, which have SOME small resistance), then the whole system would break down. I wonder if that is the answer to this conundrum.
I keep hoping I'll find it explained somewhere. Uporządnicki (talk) 03:09, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

  1. Certainly a lower resistance produces more heat. Try unplugging an electric kettle. How much resistance is there now between the two terminals in the plug outlet, which are connected by the air? Answer: a huge resistance, virtually infinite. How much heat is produced? Answer: virtually none. Now plug the kettle in, so that the terminals are connected through the kettle's circuitry, which will have a much lower resistance than the air. A significant amount of heat will be produced. When I was a schoolboy, in a physics lesson I once tried connecting the terminals of a Daniel cell with a piece of copper wire, which would have very little resistance at all. I can promise you that it produced an ENORMOUS amount of heat, and I was lucky not to seriously burn myself. Less resistance does give more heat, without a doubt.
  2. You say that this "seems to fly in the face of the idea that the current flows through the resistance and produces heat". However, the point is that, as you yourself pointed out, with more resistance you get less current (assuming constant voltage), and the drop in heat due to that drop in current is more than enough to counteract the increase in current due to the increase in resistance.
  3. You raise the question of what happens if "resistance of the heating element starts to get comparable to the resistance of whatever is supplying the voltage". If a circuit is attached to a power supply, and the resistance of the circuit drops down so low that it is equal to the resistance of the power supply, then the same amount of heat will be dissipated in the circuit and in the power supply. Typically, this will be an enormous amount of heat, and it may well be enough to completely burn out the power supply (depending, of course, on the particular power supply). The voltage will also be equally divided between the external circuit and the internal resistance of the power supply, so that the voltage applied to the external circuit will be half of what it was with a higher external circuit resistance, but it will still be enough to generate a lot of heat. If you go further still, and reduce the external circuit resistance to less than the internal resistance of the power supply, then most of the voltage will be used in pushing current through the power supply's internal resistance, only a minority of the voltage will be provided to the external circuit, and the amount of heat generated in the external circuit will drop as the resistance increases, but the amount of heat generated inside the power supply will continue to increase. Eventually, if you reduce the external resistance to zero (e.g. connect the power supply terminals directly together) then no heat at all will be produced in the external circuit, but a hell of a lot of heat will be generated in the power supply resistance. In fact, something very much like that happened in my rather stupid experiment with the Daniel cell: both the wire I connected and the cell itself got extremely hot. In fact, if the hot wire hadn't burnt my fingers and made me drop it within a fraction of a second, the cell would probably have produced so much heat that it would have exploded. If that had happened, I would have almost certainly been either dead or seriously disfigured for life. To summarise: (1) as far as the total amount of heat generated is concerned, the less resistance you have, the more heat you will get; (2) as far as the amount of heat generated in the external circuit is concerned, ignoring heat generated inside the power supply, the amount of heat will be a maximum if the external resistance is equal to the power supply's internal resistance, and will decrease as the external resistance moves away from that value, either by increasing or decreasing.

Alphabetic order for hybrids[edit]

Hi, I saw your useful work improving the categorization of some plant articles. For future reference, the hybrid sign (×) is to some degree optional in the names of species: very long established hybrids are usually treated as "good" species. Forms with and without the × are exactly the same name under the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants. Hence it's conventional in botanical works to sort alphabetically based solely on the epithet. So Agave × arizonica, for example, should be sorted alphabetically as if it were Agave arizonica.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
