Hi All,
I discovered Jeans Lifter yesterday. This is similar to his
previous dome experiment where reversing polarity did not matter.
This rules out ion acceleration. I have modeled the lifter using
simple electrostatic theory and get excellent agreement with
Jean's data using first order approximations.
For the simple triangle lifter, I calculate 34KV to hover and 40KV will upward accelerate the lifter at 4.75 meters/second^2 overcoming inertia. This is half of free fall acceleration and is consistent with the video observations. The model will allow scaling, plate size determination and permittivity selection.
