    Nice video! As you requested, I produced a video a few months ago where I go into more depth on the quantum process that generates this cooling and heating effect.

      @ElectroBOOM I just wanted to say thank you for this video. I've been looking for a cooling method for an idea of mine for quite some time, and I think these peltier devices will work very well. Thanks again and keep up the good work on the videos, i'm a huge fan.

      Hes thinking. Imagine being able to move a planet or being able to manipulate electricity into raw materials. hes saying we have extreme capability to create awsome,good or powerful objects and devices. We havent even started finding are limit as humans.

      With great respect to the professor, which appears in this video, but I think that some people resort to the science of the atom when they are unable to explain some of the phenomena invisible because most viewers can not judge their words if it is true or false and The other category of intellectuals call for understanding and when you ask them to apply what they understand standing helpless skill lies in communicating the idea in a material way if the explanation addressed to everyone.
      I repeat my thanks to you and to the Professor as it seems to me.

    I have an idea . Attach the cold surface of the module to a water bowl and use that setup to cool another module.In this way you will be able to get a very cold surface of the second module as the first module s setup is cooling the opp side of the first one. Do it.plz

    Atomic particle energy is kinetic energy transfer...and also electromagnetic energy transfer at the same time.

    Heat is light, light is photons, photons can be manipulated by electromagnetic fields or currents. At least that's my theory don't quote me on it

    So different conductor materials, much like in a battery, transfers electrons from on to the other. I actually hit this effect yesterday when i discharge a remnant amount of refrigerant out a brass fitting. A spark actually jumped from me to the steel table.
    So what i think happens is as one side causes the heat sink jump, the other side transfers energy as well (apparently away from the first side, but different charge) to complete the circuit. But since the power is continuously applied, the effect also continues, until the thermal energy overrides the power input. So using heat exchangers to continually do work could very well potentially work as a functional a/c unit, but I highly recommend using a liquid heat exchanger for the hot side and having the fins on the cold side for conditioning (depending on function.

    There is an icecream parlor in my area they have extremely cold surface like this and they make icecream as if they are sautèing the milk. after some time the milk starts to solidify and that's what they serve. idk they are using thermoelectric tech or something more traditional.

    We learned in materials (EELE 409) that as the electrons move to a higher energy state, due to the different valence band energy levels, they must absorb heat energy from the latice. When the electrons go the other way they release this energy to the latice through the process of termolization

      The dumbness in staged. He knows how to this stuff safely, all the explosions are for comedy purposes. It's a pretty good idea that I wish I would have thought of myself.

      Well, he's the typical person who is only smart in their field. The stupid side clearly shows when he goes on and begs for regulations and government involvement.
      Oh, you meant him shocking himself? All on purpose for comedic effect, to keep "tension" and attention and educational purposes. Excelt that one time he almost died.

    Inknow I am late but you can put liquid amoniac on the heat sinks. While it vaporizes it is going to cool them down really fast and make a huge temperature diffrence.

  • Dillon Perry
    Dillon Perry 28 days ago

    In higher resistance, material releases heat. It is wasting power because it does not conduct as well, and the resistance is wasting electricity in the form of spare electrons/photons/ idk/idgaf jumping off the shit and burning literally everything around it. The electricity does not have anywhere to go so it jumps off... fuck idk lol, it goes somewhere else not in the wire. Was that helpful? 😂
    I'm good at explaining for stupid people but you aren't stupid enough.
